Ouch.  We had already encountered and fixed this bug, but I applied
the fix to master only, so that the problem is still present in the
maintenance version :-(  I've now backported the patch from master,
which should fix the issue, and added you to THANKS.  See attached

The '-maxdepth' option seems to be a GNU extensions, and not portable
to POSIX find(1); the attached fix uses the '-prune' option instead.
