updatedb would probably be best rewritten.   I'm going to mark the updatedb-related bus as "Postponed" in order to consider them all in a batch, when I get around to the rewrite.

(Leslie P. Polzer did start on a rewrite some time back as part of the Summer of Code but there are some updatedb-related issues his changes don't resolve yet, I think)

The find command for NETPATHS in updatedb is different than the others.
For example (line breaks changed for ease of comparison):

   # : A8
   \( -type d -regex "$PRUNEREGEX" -prune \)
   -o $print_option || ...

The -prune is inside the parentheses.  Compare with, say:

   # : A6
   \( $prunefs_exp -type d -regex "$PRUNEREGEX" \)
   -prune -o $print_option || ...

I don't actually use NETPATHS, so I'm not sure if it actually makes a difference, I just saw it by inspection ...
