Why is updatedb in Fedora 16 not indexing other mounted filesystems?

My /etc/updatedb.conf file in F14 and my /etc/fstab file in F14 are almost identical to my files in F16 (except for the obvious differences). Yet, where in F14 the drives mounted as /media/1TB_Drive and as /media/2TB-Drive were indexed by mlocate, now, in F16, they are ignored. And yes, I have removed /media from updatedb.conf and set the prunebindmounts to no.

Please file a bug report. This seems to indicate a change in the way updatedb functions and the maintainer will be in a position to answer your query.
