I had this happen, the trigger was updatedb, as called by cron at 7:40 in my
slackware 3.0 distribution. It went untill I killed and restarted
klogd/syslogd. I changed the command like for updatedb to not include /proc
(and some others while I was at it), and the problem went away. Running
"find /proc" does not generate the error messages, so I don't know exactly
what causes it, nor why it just started with 2.1.32.
