findutils-CVS-2005-02-07 -- problem/bug in find

Hi James,

yesterday I have fetched the findutils sources from CVS (as of 06 Feb 2005).

Meanwhile I found the following problem (bug) in find:

        find /usr/local/lib -name '*.la'

yields "find: /usr/local" on stderr, nothing on stdout, and rc=1  whereas the
version from findutils-4.2.15 (from 30 Jan 2005) yields nothings on
stderr, lots of files on stdout, and rc=0.

I should add that (for historical reasons) there are two symlinks involved:

        /usr/local => /etc/local
        /etc/local => /mnt/local = disk partition

Note, however, that the files given on the command line are real files
(actually directories) and not symbolic links!

Adding the option -H reproduces the result from findutils-4.2.15, but should
the -P/-H/-L options really be applied to the directory containig real files
given on the command lines?

Any comments?
