The patch was applied to 4.3.x quite a while ago, but I had forgotten to update the bug.

Yes, perm.texi came from coreutils.

I assume the update to perm.texi is ultimately from coreutils.   Yes?

"find" mishandles symbolic permissions that contain
"X".  Here's a patch, which contains test cases illustrating
the problem along with a fix for it.  I discovered this when
bootstrapping "find" from CVS.  There are other bootstrapping
issues but I'll raise them in a different bug report.

This patch is relative to CVS findutils on Savannah.
