This was discovered in combination with -size test but after some tests it
proved to be there with other tests as well (-name).

I actually wonder if this is indeed a bug because it is too obvious to have
been ignored or not reported so far...

So the case is that

find . -size 0

finds nothing in the current directory.

find . -print0 -size 0

accepts *everything* as a correct match. As if

find . -print0 

was invoked.

Hopefully I am not reporting something silly here.
