Secure locate 3.1 does not find path element.

root@server:~# mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
/dev/sda6 on /media/AUX type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/semoi/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=semoi)
/dev/sda2 on /media/DATA type ext2 (rw)
As you can see, the path element '/DATA' is in mount's output. Now:
root@server:~# updatedb
root@server:~# locate /DATA
What can possibly be the cause that slocate does not find that element?

Take a look at /etc/updatedb.conf. If /media is in the list of "PRUNEPATHS", and I bet it is, it is excluded from the database. Just remove it from that line and run updatedb again.

It certainly is included there. I was misled by the slackware 12.0 default behavior. Thanks a lot.
