Follow-up Comment #3, bug #24561 (project findutils):

Should we for whatever reason decide not to change the code,
address@hidden suggests an example:

OK, please mention something like:
-ok in contrast to -exec, has its stdin redirected for various reasons.
To workaround this, where one would normally use -ok, one should use e.g.,
-ok true ; -exec ed {} ; #to edit selected files
-ok true ; -exec mplayer {} ; #to play selected songs
