Follow-up Comment #3, bug #51345 (project findutils):

Okay, so this happens after a fresh reboot.

Thanks for the strace logs; but please compress them the next time because it
was 12M+37M to download.

If I got it right, then the last directory processed in the 1st run was
and then ended normally while the second run continued with

Interestingly, the 1st run didn't find any match:
there was no write() system call at all.  Really strange.

Back to my other question: did you try with a newer version of find,
either the latest release 4.6 or even a version built from the Git
I mean, 4.4.2 is about eight years old, and a lot has changed since then.
I didn't find an obvious bug fix for this in the NEWS by a very brief look,
but I don't want to spend much time riding a dead horse.

Thanks & have a nice day,

P.S. It is probably a good idea to skip file system types like /proc and
because they may contain loops and usually don't contain the information one
is searching for, so I usually use the -xdev option when searching from the
root directory '/'.
