updatedb not working

For the past 8 days now apparently updatedb has been broken. I just found out when I logged in today and tried to do a locate. It warned me that locatedb was at least 8 days old. I tried to do an updatedb and received the following error message

/usr/bin/find: . changed during execution of /usr/bin/find

When I finally exit back to command line (it won't do this on its own) I get this message:

updatedb: new database would be empty

And of course I am still unable to use locate :). Just thought you guys might want to know. I am not the only one with this problem though I have only heard mention of one other recently.
