Geoff says :-

However, I did notice one difference to how the old "-exec ... \;" works. 
When any of the executions have a non-zero exit status, the final exit status
of find is now non-zero.  This is only supposed to happen with "-exec ... +"
(where it is done to make up for the primary always evaluating as true).

(this bug report relates to the CVS code, not to any released code)
