Good catch!
This regression has been introduced by commit v4.5.10-95-ga29e61b
back in 2011.  I added a test for this - see attached.

Thanks & have a nice day,

There's a bit of a silly bug I noticed in the 'oldfind' code, reproducible as follows:

$ mkdir test
$ touch test/..test
$ oldfind test

Note that the file "test/..test" was not listed.

The attached patch fixes this.
