Yes, it does create a new buffer, in which the following is to
be found:

    ,----[ *locate* ]
    | /cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/perl5/5.8/unicore/lib/gc_sc/
    | /cygdrive/c/cygwin/lib/perl5/5.8/unicore/lib/gc_sc/
    | /cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio 
    | /cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio 
    | /cygdrive/z/.gimp-2.2/patterns
    | Process locate-process finished

If I redo it, or change "pattern" into something else, it reacts
correctly (to my understanding of it), appending the new results
at the end of that same buffer.

Best regards,
