#27213 was fixed in findutils-4.5.8, so I will also mark this as closed.

I won't be testing the patch. I'm fine with Martin's suggestion that it may be a dupe. --Ken

Unless you tell me it's not a dupe, I'm going to assume Martin is correct.

Duplicate of or related to bug 27213?
Does the patch there help solve your issue?
