GNU locate 4.1: updatedb bug

As of locate version 4.1, if the output dir doesn't exist, updatedb returns a confusing error that the database would be empty, rather than specifying the output path is invalid.

Additionally, it would be helpful if <http://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/findutils.html> contained this bug address.

                                                Thanks for locate,

                                                Chris Pepper
