System->Administration->Firewall crashes on F14

I get this in System->Administration->Firewall after pressing "apply". What could cause this?

Have you examined the directories' and file's permissions, attributes, acls, and SELinux context yet? What do you get?

Re: System->Administration->Firewall crashes on F14

I can easily check those permissions, but how do I know what the right values are?

And why are they wrong, when this is a completely standard system where nothing has been touched?
