This problem is fixed in the CVS code for findutils.
To resolve your problem, you could either wait for the
next official release of findutils, or check out a copy
of the code from the CVS repository for findutils.

If the first filename statrts with a blank (possible in principle ?) bigram and code will produce wrong results.

The very same problematic code has already been fixed in frcode.c
