I found 'gosh, mandb worked'. 'Now where did it store whatever it
stored?' At first I thought it might be in some mode 4777 directory in
/usr or /var ... nope, hmmm find ~ -mtime -1 ... ah ha, it saved it
right under my nose.

Anyway, I made a anacrontab to remind me to run it (mandb) as me (user 1000)
every 444 days.
