[OpenIndiana-discuss] Infinite updates...

I have a little issue with updating my OI servers.
Each time I do a "pkg update", it (re)downloads and (re)installs
the same updates, over and over...


OpenIndiana (powered by illumos)    SunOS 5.11    oi_151a7    October 2012
root at s5:~# pkg update

A clone of openindiana-1 exists and has been updated and activated.
On the next boot the Boot Environment openindiana-10 will be
mounted on '/'.  Reboot when ready to switch to this updated BE.

The following unexpected or editable files and directories were
salvaged while executing the requested package operation; they
have been moved to the displayed location in the image:

  var/lib/slocate -> /tmp/tmp9NDUDf/var/pkg/lost+found/var/lib/slocate-20140327T095058Z


If I do another "pkg update", it will redo the whole thing again.
The server has been up for 326 days.
Is it because I am forced to reboot to activate all the new updates and 

not just the kernel related ones?
