    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
    184 632
    208 632
    228 632
    248 632
    272 632
    292 632
    316 632
    340 632
    364 632
    384 632
    408 632
    432 632
    448 632
    464 632
    484 632
    508 632
    524 632
    548 632
    564 632
    584 632
    608 632
    /* 30 entries */, 15729) = 632
    lseek(4, 1, SEEK_SET) = 1
    lseek(4, 0, SEEK_CUR) = 1
    getdents(4, 0 620
    16 620
    40 620
    64 620
    84 620
    108 620
    128 620
    152 620
    172 620
    196 620
    216 620
    236 620
    260 620
    280 620
    304 620
    328 620
    352 620
    372 620
    396 620
    420 620
    436 620
    452 620
    472 620
    496 620
    512 620
    536 620
    552 620
    572 620
    596 620
    /* 29 entries */, 15729) = 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.
