I received some mail very recently indicating that the
findutils-4.2.26 test suite spuriously fails on some systems (but
works OK on 32-bit x86 Linux systems).  Unfortunately I can't find it
now, I suspect I accidentally deleted it this morning.  Sorry about

Anyway, the attached patch includes a proposed fix for the test suite.
The modified tests still verify that the problem has been fixed, they
just no longer depend on the exact value of ARG_MAX on the system
where the test suite is being run being the same as ARG_MAX on the
system where I tested the code.

I had also been told that the many-short-arguments problem (supposedly
fixed in 4.2.26) still persists on the hppa platform.  In the course
of preparing the patch I discovered a possible cause for this (we were
checking our argument count in two places, but the bugfix had only
been applied in one).  I would like to know if this patch also fixes
that problem.

The patch should apply cleanly against findutils-4.2.26.
