place for find bugs?

Is find considered a "core util"? or where should I report a 'find' bug?

I ran into something I'd consider a bug in find:

was trying to clear out empty directories using the "-empty" predicate.
It returns "true" in the case of a directory full of "symlinks" (at
least on an xfs file system under SuSE 9.3, package findutils-4.2.19-3.1.).
While there may be no file space allocated for files or directories under
the directory, it seems there may very well be space taken up by symlinks
themselves and even though they may be held within the minimum allocation
unit of the directory block (4k, I believe), I don't regard that as "empty".
It still is taking up 1 block by it's existance.  ;-/

Should this go to another list?
