Follow-up Comment #11, bug #56410 (project findutils):

Thank's for workaround, Berny!
The key point of this option according to manual:
When find *examines* or *prints* information about files, the information used
shall be taken from the properties of the file to which the link points, not
from the 
link itself

Many of my coleagues read manual of *find*, and understood it just like me.
And were surprised by current *find* behaviour. I mean, why do you need this
option if "GNU find will always pass the original name of the file found,
regardless whether -L is in 
place or not"? 

At my point of view, change is needed. Either in manual page of *find* or in
its behaviour.

Thanks again for workaround!
