Subjectslocate never finishes in 2.2.10-ac8
Hello,

I switch to 2.2.10-ac8 (RH 6.0) last night and saw that the slocate
cron run every night was still active, consuming 100% CPU.

I straced it : it repeatadly run through the following two loops :

/* 29 entries */, 15729) = 620
lseek(4, 0, SEEK_SET) = 0
lseek(4, 0, SEEK_CUR) = 0
getdents(4, 0 632
12 632
28 632
52 632
76 632
96 632
120 632
140 632
164 632

608 632
/* 30 entries */, 15729) = 632
lseek(4, 1, SEEK_SET) = 1
lseek(4, 0, SEEK_CUR) = 1
getdents(4, 0 620

I stopped the command and retried by hand, with the same result.

I reverted back to 2.2.10-ac4, and everything is running OK again.

If it may be of interest, I automount my home over NFS and a few
other directories.
