Description Jay Freeman 2000-07-08 17:27:37 EDT
slocate prints a message to run /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron when there 
isn't an existing slocate database.  slocate.cron (which runs slocate -u) 
does as well :).  After that point (as there is now a database), 
everything works fine, but that slocate warning message is going to end up 
getting sent to root in an e-mail from crond, telling him to run

Winston Beta 4 does the same thing, and root is sent an email immediately upon
