I'm marking this bug as postponed, awaiting a response from the submitter - meanwhile, I'll work on other bugs where I have the material to hand to investigate the problem.

The updatedb program is a shell script - is it updatedb that hogs the memory, or one opf the programs it runs?   It runs

find
frcode
bigram
code
sort

Is it one of these programs that produces the large memory consumption?

Updatedb seems to eat horrible amounts of memory on my workstation, causing it to swap and near to grind to halt.

The reason is that I simply have a lot of files around. Couldn't updatedb work in a more memory friendly way?
