I've noticed the very same thing.  Also, it seems to rebuild this file
every so often even after I delete it (I haven't checked the crontabs yet,
but that's probably why).  I'm not sure why it gets built (especially
since apropos lookups rarely work anyway for me), but I'll look into it

Hehehehe...well, yours is about 10MBs smaller than mine, so count yourself
a little luckier :P

Anyone with some spare time is welcome to look into this ;)
