Someone reported on cygwin that they encountered the following error message
from find 4.2.27:

find: //desdata1/divisions/frameworks/share/Tools/BrainTools changed during
execution of find (old inode number -411813144, new
inode number -457114904, filesystem type is system) [ref 1114]

However, on cygwin, ino_t is unsigned long long (64 bits, never negative). 
The code in wd_sanity_check() that prints values of type ino_t by using %ld
on (long)old_ino loses data, and is misleading when a negative number
results; it would be better to use %llu on (uintmax_t)old_ino.
