fstype=auto breaks updatedb



It turns out that if you specify filesystem type `auto' in
/etc/fstab, updatedb (the thing which updates your `locate'
database) ceases to work.

Here's the contents of my /etc/updatedb.conf:

PRUNEFS="devpts NFS nfs afs proc smbfs autofs auto iso9660"
PRUNEPATHS="/tmp /usr/tmp /var/tmp /afs /net" 
export PRUNEFS
export PRUNEPATHS


deleting the `auto' entry fixes it.
