We've tried this :
[root@samba /root]# rm /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db
rm: remove `/var/lib/slocate/slocate.db'? y
[root@samba /root]# /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron
[root@samba /root]# ls -l /var/lib/slocate/
total 5400
-rw-r-----    1 root     slocate   5514164 Apr  8 21:35 slocate.db

But we've always got the same error.

This is fixed in the current slocate, AFAIK.
