Fixing a broken cron job

I am afflicted by Ubuntu Bug #189462, and so I'm getting occasional e-mails from cron that tell me:

slocate: fatal error: load_file: Could not open file: /etc/updatedb.conf: No such file or directory

It turns out to have a trivial solution: touch /etc/updatedb.conf

Update: August 2011 - Finally fixed in Debian.
