It is 
(and in an emacs *shell*
which find

Do I need to redefine null-device - its NUL? though I've just checked 
find /dev/null -print0
bash-2.05$ find NUL -print0

where C-@ = 0x0

Maybe I should try stepping through to see where it locks up, though a 
C-x C-e on that call-process line killed it for me before
