Leopard. But, as I said, this machine (desktop) is usually not turn on
at such early hours; my laptop is, though, and it shows Mar 7 (last
Saturday) as the modification date of locate.database.

Then this is the reason for your anacron-like behavior, isn't it? In
the past, and above all in my office machines (which were never turned
on at such hours), I changed the time for daily, weekly and monthly
cleaning jobs. But now I just use find for /usr/local and, for
everything else, the excellent and free utility EasyFind
which, unlike Spotlight, searches into ~/Library and /Library.
