13.1 has slocate 3.1 only; what about the current? mlocate does look better: offers more options, is actively maintained, is compatible with slocate and (mostly) GNU locate. On the bright side of this issue, a heap-related bug appears to have been fixed back in version 2.5 of slocate and there were no vulnerability reports since then.

Reason: GNU locate compatibility is best-effort
