This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (rs6000-ibm-aix4.3.3.0, Motif)
 of Mon Nov 20 2000 on neon.rchland.ibm.com
configured using `configure
--prefix=/afs/rch/rel/common/prod/ct/local/200011/rs_aix43 --with-x
--with-x-toolkit=motif'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

find-name-dired generated and used the following inefficient command:
--->>>  find . \( -name 'pwrspice*' \) -exec ls -ld {} \;

Wouldn't something like the following would be more efficient?
--->>>  find . \( -name 'pwrspice*' \) | XXXSEDXXX | xargs ls -ld

... with the XXXSEDXXX replaced with something that backslashes sh meta
characters.
