This works as expected:
find . -maxdepth 1 -type d | while read x; do echo $x; done
But this doesn't:
find . -type d -maxdepth 1 | while read x; do echo $x; done
find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option
argument -type, but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests
specified before it as well as those specified after it).  Please specify
options before other arguments.

The actual results are identical, but one blurts out an erroneous message on
