i was going to suggest the same.
* instead of re-reading all the contents of all directories each time
the database is updated, mlocate keeps timestamp information in its
database and can know if the contents of a directory changed without
reading them again. This makes updates much faster and less demanding
on the hard drive. This feature is only found in mlocate.
