I recently installed a USB drive for backing up my LAN using rvm.

This drive is permanently mounted.

The files on this drive may well not be owned by a user/group on the
local system.

340.noid kicks in weekly as it should and finds a whole lot of files
with an unknown user and/or group.

I have set the periodic.conf variable weekly_noid_dirs to include all
root level directories except for /mnt.  I then ran it to test it.

This flags two directories which didn't show up on last nights report:

# ./340.noid
Check for files with an unknown user or group:

$ ls -ld /usr/compat/linux/var/lock /usr/compat/linux/var/spool/mail
drwxrwxr-x  3 root  14  512B Apr 18 13:30 /usr/compat/linux/var/lock
drwxrwxr-x  2 root  12  512B Feb  6  1996

Why did these not show up last night?  Is it something to be worried
