Hello,

this is http://bugs.debian.org/582717 reported by Raja R Harinath
--------------------------------
Running the following fragment

d=$(mktemp -d); mkdir -p $d/{foo,bar,baz}/bug; find $d -type d -name bug -print -execdir pwd \;

at a command prompt gives me:

/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/bar/bug
/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/bar
/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/baz/bug
/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/bar
/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/foo/bug
/tmp/tmp.UqsljYxydZ/bar

The expected output, which is correctly obtained with version 4.4.2-1 from testing is something like:

/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/bar/bug
/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/bar
/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/baz/bug
/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/baz
/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/foo/bug
/tmp/tmp.5nfIU7cjDH/foo
--------------------------------

Note how pwd continues to stay at /tmp/.../bar.

I have confirmed the behavior, it also affects oldfind. This is a new bug, 4.5.8 behaves correctly.
