Hmmmmm, didn't think of log rotation. Another thing to check.

Indexing.

There is plain "updatedb", which simply lists the files, and there are
other desktop variants wich also look at the contents, and index them.
The second variant is both cpu heavy and i/o heavy. They try to code it
so that it runs on iddle periods and stops automatically when other
process needs more cpu, but it doesn't always work right.

On occasion, they break when trying to analyze some particular document:
this is a bug and could cause your symptoms.

It can be disabled, of course, or simply adjusted and tuned.
