This problem is fixed in the CVS code for findutils.
To resolve your problem, you could either wait for the
next official release of findutils, or check out a copy
of the code from the CVS repository for findutils.

The bug was introduced in find/find.c revision 1.38, replacing process_to_path() with a wrapper around process_path().

The old process_top_path() is available as old_process_top_path() but it is dead code which is never invoked.

I do not understand the code, but for those who do, this might be helpful.

The bug was introduced in 4.2.9 (4.2.8 is ok).

It looks like regression:

$ find --version
GNU find version 4.2.5
$ find /usr/share/info -name 'find.info*' -printf '%P\n'
find.info.bz2

$ find --version
GNU find version 4.2.10
$ find /usr/share/info -name 'find.info*' -printf '%P\n'
usr/share/info/find.info.bz2

I've confirmed this bug and attached files for the testsuite to catch it.

I do hope I did not mke an error, this is my first contact with dejagnu.

find /usr/share/info -name 'find.info' -print '%P'

displays:

usr/share/info/find.info

rather than

find.info
