And this is weirder -- after running updatedb, locate now says that
libflashplayer.so exists in ~/.mozilla/plugins. Ok, so it is installed
locally, instead of globally. I can deal with that. But why did locate
not find it before? Is updatedb not running automatically on my
system? Maybe I'll go back to using 'find' instead of 'locate.' The
syntax for locate is easier, but find never missed anything before (that
I know of).

Curiouser and curiouser.
Okay; that's getting weird.
"updatedb" runs by default, I believe, every day. However, just to be
sure, I'd run it manually, then do another run of your locate command.
