Well, the denizens of the coreutils mailing list may not know how to
fix slocate.

As far as GNU locate (not slocate) goes, in 4.3.x it uses gnulib's
fts().   In fact, it uses find to build the database, and you
indicated that find does not suffer from this problem.     If slocate
doesn't work for you, you could always use locate instead.
