I saw this, too. I waited for an selinux update and it persisted
after that. Finally, I actually read the message and wondered why I
would ever have such a directory. I would never attempt to start KDE
as the root user. I knew I didn't do that. I looked at the date on
this directory and it matched the date I installed (fresh) F17. I
haven't got a clue as to why it was created. I just deleted it and
then started looking elsewhere. I see that a ~root/.kde directory and
a ~root/.config directory exists. WTF? I deleted those, too. (They
were also time-stamped with my install date.)
I don't know how the install went so wrong, but it's gone now.
This is from my shell history:
sudo restorecon /var/tmp/kdecache-root
That didn't do it. Later I did this:
sudo rmdir /var/tmp/kdecache-root
sudo rm -rf /var/tmp/kdecache-rootGr0zAx
sudo rm -rf /root/.kde /root/.config

I also had a problem with .kde in root earlier in my F17 adventure. I removed the .kde
folder in root and have had no problems with it since.
The solution was given by Dan Walsh in comment 15 of this Bugzilla:
According to Dan, it was a bug in KDE.
