I realize this is getting more and more off-topic, but this is 
something that puzzles me and that I hope someone might clear up.
I use Locator, which I agree is excellent, superior to Sherlock as 
far as searching the file system is concerned. I also use MacJanitor 
on my  PowerBook that isn't up 24/7. One of the tasks that's in 
MacJanitor' weekly script is to update the locate database. What 
happens is that after MacJanitor has done that, Locator can't find 
files anymore and needs to rebuild the database (which, as Locator 
warns, indeed takes quite some time). Is this a bug in MacJanitor?
