More information is required.  Simply loading the kernel module is  
not enough; the sysctl security.mac.seeotheruids.enabled must be set  
to 1 for the policy to be active.

Could the submitter please post the output of "sysctl -a | grep  
security.mac" on the affected system?

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm
not sure about the former.                        -- Einstein (attrib.)
