No, Clea, you *have* to use it when the job is run as root! When it's  
run as some user, then it might be true that only the own home  
directory tree is searched and indexed. (Are your users "things?")  
And from the periodic scripts the job *is* run as root.

Isn't vi that text editor with two modes... one that beeps and one  
that corrupts your file?
