Follow-up Comment #5, bug #18576 (project findutils):

Yes, -execdir currently fails when . is on PATH, and I don't see any reason
to change that aspect of the behavior, since -execdir is not standardized. 
If you relax to just a warning, then by the time a warning is printed, find
would have already forked the problem process.  And if you want
interactivity, -okdir fits the bill (although maybe it would be worth adding
'-okdir command {} +'?).
