Update of bug #17782 (project findutils):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 4 - Important

Follow-up Comment #1:

Prefixing the expansion of {} with ./ is a security feature.  I'm not
planning to remove it.

However, as Andreas points out the actual bug here is that arguments
containing {} are prefixed with ./ at the start of the argument, even if the
{} is not at the start of the argument.   Example:

$ find baz -execdir echo 'foo {}' \;
./foo baz
