This is a duplicate of bug #37926, which I raised because I didn't realise this bug already existed. Apologies for any inconvenience.

With findutils-4.5.10 the -inum option works only on some fs types. I tried xfs and ext3 and while -inum works on xfs, it doesn't on ext3. -samefile works on both fs types. This is on a openSUSE 12.2 system with kernel 3.4.6.

Where might I look to possibly pinpoint the point of failure?
