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

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?
