Excuse my ignorance, but I don't understand the above statement.
Could you elaborate a bit, please?
Is a functional change in findutils to be expected from this?

That's another story, and might deserve another patch.
: So I propose this patch to findutils.
So, my patch apparently /was/ correct (except the (c)-year). :-/
