Unfortunately it appears to me that cygwin does not come with the cron
deamon which is what usually updates the database overnight. On Red Hat
systems this is done by executing the script /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron
which used to be called /etc/cron.dailt/updatedb.cron on older
distributions. All the script does is the following:
/usr/bin/slocate -u -f "nfs,smbfs,ncpfs,proc,devpts" -e
So perhaps we don't need cron but running it manually can be time
