Follow-up Comment #3, bug #27328 (project findutils):

Essentially there was a bug in the code that was supposed to deal with the
situation where exec fails due to an over-long command line.   Since the code
tries not to exceed ARG_MAX anyway, this code was rarely exercised and so
nobody noticed the bug until now.  

I have a patch which looks very promising, but it's large and I haven't fully
tested it yet.   I'll attach it to this bug RSN.
