I've applied and pushed the patch now.

findutils 4.5.5 freshly compiled crashes.  applying just that patch and it no longer crashes.

i hit this issue a few times on and off (sometimes it'd segfault, sometimes it'd hang).  when i hit these cases again, i'll try the patched find to make sure it fixes the issues.

Essentially there was a bug in the code that was supposed to deal with the situation where exec fails due to an over-long command line.   Since the code tries not to exceed ARG_MAX anyway, this code was rarely exercised and so nobody noticed the bug until now. 

I have a patch which looks very promising, but it's large and I haven't fully tested it yet.   I'll attach it to this bug RSN.

Hmm, spoke too soon.

buildstate->cmd_argv[0] appears to be NULL.  

It looks there is a bug somewhere in the for loop in bc_do_exec, in which the success case (where "goto fin" doesn't happen) incorrectly updates the data when preparing for the next loop iteration.

The immediate problem is these lines:

   1992   /* In parent; set up for next time. */
   1993   bc_clear_args(ctl, buildstate);

The effect of this is that this code...

   2007   if (WIFSIGNALED (wait_status))
   2008     {
   2009       error (0, 0, _("%s terminated by signal %d"),
   2010              quotearg_n_style(0, options.err_quoting_style,
   2011                               buildstate->cmd_argv[0]),
   2012              WTERMSIG (wait_status));

... causes a SIGSEGV since buildstate->cmd_argv[0] is NULL.
