But why wouldn't you want the MS stuff in the locate database? It
would happen on any other system with that partition quasi-permanently
mounted. And, as was said, the update happens in the wee hours of the
morning and the extra time isn't going to kill you and may just help
if you do ever need a file that's on that partition.

I fail to see what the problem is. If there's a translator in place,
then it acts as a mounted partition.
