Thanks for the bug report.

If I have correctly understood your bug report, I can't reproduce it
with GNU find 4.1.7 or with the current CVS code (I'm in the process
of checking version 4.1.20 now, and will get back to you if the
results are different from the current CVS code) :-

$ ../compile.i386/find/find . -type f -depth -name fi"*"

$ ../compile.i386/find/find . -depth -type d -name fi"*"

$ ../compile.i386/find/find --version
GNU find version 4.2.0-CVS

$ find . -depth -type d -name fi"*"

$ find --version
GNU find version 4.1.7

Very puzzling.  Could you perhaps send me the result of reproducing
the problem on Red Hat Linux by using strace to produce a list of the
system calls being made?    (Please don't copy it to the list).

Secondly, since this bug looks like it might not be trivial to
investigate, could you log it at
<http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=findutils> please?  That way I
can't forget to do something about it, and you can track my progress
if you wish.
