This problem is fixed in the CVS code for findutils.
To resolve your problem, you could either wait for the 
next official release of findutils, or check out a copy 
of the code from the CVS repository for findutils.

The bug was introduced in find/find.c revision 1.38, replacing 
process_to_path() with a wrapper around process_path().

The old process_top_path() is available as old_process_top_path() but it is 
dead code which is never invoked.

I do not understand the code, but for those who do, this might be helpful.

The bug was introduced in 4.2.9 (4.2.8 is ok).

It looks like regression:

$ find --version
GNU find version 4.2.5
$ find /usr/share/info -name 'find.info*' -printf '%Pn'

$ find --version
GNU find version 4.2.10
$ find /usr/share/info -name 'find.info*' -printf '%Pn'

I've confirmed this bug and attached files for the testsuite to catch it.

I do hope I did not mke an error, this is my first contact with dejagnu.
