Follow-up Comment #7, bug #23443 (project findutils):

I'd missed the significance of the 4.3.0/4.3.1 change, thanks for pointing it
out again.

The differences between 4.3.0 and 4.3.1 were very substantial, which
unfortunately makes pinpointing the cause quite difficult.  

However, one possibility if the fact that in 4.3.1 find now defailts to using
fts() to descend the filesystem hierarchy rather than the old built-in
recursive method.   The 4.3.1 source tarball (and later releases up to and
including 4.5.0) builds two find binaries.  One of them is "find" and the
other is wither "newfind" or "oldfind" dependng on whether fts was selected as
the default or not (as of 4.3.1, fts is the default, you can see "FTS" in the
output of find--version).  

So it would be helpful if you could perform this test with "oldfind" (though
you may need to download the source from alpha.gnu.org and build it).  That
would narrow down the possibilities a lot.
