for some reason, people like putting 1000's of small yet  "critical" files in
/tmp and not clean them up.  for some reason the admin cleans up /tmp only every
30 days.  for some reason i cant conveince people to use other dir's for their

for these reasons, updatedb fails because sort runs out of space on the /tmp
file system.

therefore, may i suggest a -T option be used for updatedb to let sort use a
different dir for its' temp files?
