As discovered in bug #15384:

oldfind dies with assertion failure when invoked in a directory that has been rendered inaccessible, as of this patch:

$ mkdir /tmp/a/b
$ cd /tmp/a/b
$ chmod a-rx /tmp/a
$ oldfind
assertion "starting_desc >= 0" failed: file "/home/eblake/findutils-4.3.8-1/src/findutils-4.3.8/find/find.c", line 201
