updatedb cron job never finishes



Hi,

Whenever updatedb runs via cron, it goes to sleep and never finishes
the job, leaving all these processes running:

29519 ?        S      0:00 /USR/SBIN/CRON
29520 ?        Ss     0:00 /bin/sh -c test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run
29521 ?        S      0:00 /bin/sh -c test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run
29522 ?        S      0:00 run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily
29559 ?        Ss     0:00 /bin/sh /etc/cron.daily/find
29561 ?        SN     0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/updatedb
29569 ?        SN     0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/updatedb
29572 ?        SN     0:00 /usr/bin/sort -z -f
29573 ?        SN     0:00 /usr/lib/locate/frcode -0
29577 ?        SN     0:00 su nobody -s /bin/sh -c /usr/bin/find / -ignore_readd
29578 ?        SN     0:01 /usr/bin/find / -ignore_readdir_race ( -fstype NFS -o

What could be causing this?  It happens on Etch for x86 and AMD64.
