At 2012-02-10 14:10:31 i'd committed an updated "version_func.inc" where
i had *tried* to optimize the find call. AFAIK the openvas-feed was

Yes, agree. My updates to version_func.inc will not solve this issue.
But maybe speed up the find...
In my tests i saw, that the first find takes some time while all
following finds are very fast. But on a VERY large file system, the
first find may still running during the next find is started and so on...
