Description ab0781 1999-05-10 19:30:08 UTC
When using updatedb to create the locate database, it locks
up on empty directories. At first it seemed to be taking an
extremely long time, but when running it with -v, it became
obvious the it was getting locked up on certain directories.
When a file was placed in the directory, it would continue
without any problems
