(SID)address@hidden:~$ find /tmp/ -ctime x
find: missing argument to `-ctime'
(SID)address@hidden:~$ find --version
find (GNU findutils) 4.4.2

This is non-ancient breakage and also applies to GIT head. (both oldfind and
find). It was introduced in 4.3.6, earlier versions are fine:

findutils_4.2.33-1/usr/bin/find: invalid argument `x' to `-ctime'
findutils_4.3.5-1/usr/bin/find: invalid argument `x' to `-ctime'
findutils_4.3.6-1/usr/bin/find: missing argument to `-ctime'
findutils_4.3.8-1/usr/bin/find: missing argument to `-ctime'

The issue was reported by Marc Lehmann in http://bugs.debian.org/568490
