this based on <http://bugs.debian.org/548944>. If -L is present -execdir does not work as expected:

ametzler@argenau:/tmp$ mkdir -p findtest/ab/b
ametzler@argenau:/tmp$ cd findtest/
ametzler@argenau:/tmp/findtest$ touch ab/b/yyyy
ametzler@argenau:/tmp/findtest$ find -name yyyy -exec ls {} \;
ametzler@argenau:/tmp/findtest$ find -name yyyy -execdir ls {} \;
ametzler@argenau:/tmp/findtest$ find -L -name yyyy -execdir ls {} \;
ametzler@argenau:/tmp/findtest$ oldfind -L -name yyyy -execdir ls {} \;

As you can see oldfind (pre-fts) is fine. 4.5.5 behaves the same way as 4.4.2.

thanks, cu andreas
