updatedb : how to disable its (an)cron job ?

updatedb runs once a day, I think triggered by a (ana)cron job,
and I would love to disable it, as it always has the bad habit of
running when I am using the machine. I do use the "locate" command, but
so rarely, that suffering updatedb just isn't worth it.
I don't see any GUI in Gnome to manage scheduled jobs (might be an idea
for a Feisty+1 spec....), could someone explain to me how to
"properly" (ie not changing permissions ;-) disable updatedb's job ?
