man-db runs a cronjob daily. Every time this cronjob runs, it causes 
very high system load for about 5 minutes (this is longer than 
updatedb). Does it really have to run daily? If so, is it really normal 
that it causes such high load? I would hope not. Can this please be 
fixed, it is very annoying.
