Hello, trampers,
as known, after su(do)-ing a file with Tramp, there may be a problem
when using SELinux regarding changed domain type.  This is due to the
temporary file caring its flawed SELinux context.  However, if the
temp file is copied instead of moved over the original, original
context is kept without dealing with special commands.  This little
change to tramp-handle-write-region seems to do the job, if not, at
least you get an idea ;)
