Follow-up Comment #2, bug #52137 (project findutils):

It's neither documented nor does xargs perfom any checks if mutually-exclusive
options are provided. So I think both should be fixed.

But I cannot see posix _requiring_ that -I and -n _must_ produce strange
results, so xargs could go beyond posix and produce correct results in that
case anyway.
