Hi all!

We have found recently a bug in find command.
min should represents the minutes and time the days.

For example (on Arch linux) :

touch today ; find . -mtime 0 will find it because 0 means today.

result: ./today

touch today ; find . -mtime -1 should mean the same, just like the result: ./today

touch today ; find . -mtime +1 doesn't find it, because this searches older than 1 day files

NOW, the problem is with the *min

touch now ; find . -mmin 0 and the result is nothing.
touch now ; find . -mmin 1 found it now.

(however on BSD: touch now ; find . -mmin 0 result: ./now)

So the problem is:
find something that is older than 1 day is find . -*time +0
find something that is older than 1 minute is find . -*min +1
