Summary:  Memory hog

Original Submission:  Updatedb seems to eat horrible amounts of memory on my 
workstation, causing it to swap and near to grind to halt.

The reason is that I simply have a *lot* of files around. Couldn't updatedb 
work in a more memory friendly way?

I'm marking this bug as postponed, awaiting a response from the submitter - 
meanwhile, I'll work on other bugs where I have the material to hand to 
investigate the problem.

The updatedb program is a shell script - is it updatedb that hogs the memory, 
or one opf the programs it runs?   It runs


Is it one of these programs that produces the large memory consumption?
