Just to be fully complete about this one, the silly reason was that:

1) MSYS/find was already installed on my machine.

2) MSYS/find was supposedly good enough because command find-name-dired
   only outputs relative paths.

3) I was not aware of MSYS/Find bug
   (https://sourceforge.net/p/mingw/bugs/2161/) --- or maybe I had
   forgotten about it, I have the impression that I had already met some
   similar issue quite some ago.


1) You are fully right, using EZWinPorts
  does the job very well. In the end this is what I am doing now.

2) The other work around (which you may not like) is tampering the
   find-ls-option variable to set its car to "-exec ls -dils {} +" and
   continue with the MSYS find. I have tried that and it also fixes it,
   however I preferred to use EZWinPorts because the findutil is more
   recent and that allowed me to take the win64 port.
