Axel,

this is not true in Tiger and Leopard. I wanted to check it, so I  
waited until it was updated. Here is the previous state documented  
(then I let Fink compile qt4-x11):

	-r--r--r--   1 nobody  wheel  8244919 12 Mär 03:43 /var/db/ 
locate.database

Then I waited until today:

	-r--r--r--   1 nobody  wheel  8202863 13 Mär 16:29 /var/db/ 
locate.database

The reason is that the Launch Service has taken over a lot of UNIX  
system services. One of them is cron. And it's able to act like anacron.

If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

P.S.: I could have fooled you: env TZ=PST8PDT ls -lt /var/db/ 
locate.database
	-r--r--r--   1 nobody  wheel  8202863 13 Mär 08:29 /var/db/ 
locate.database
