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.

Documentation would serve two purposes:

  • It makes "-m/-s are supported (as noops)" a officially supported feature.
  • The obvious one. To document behavior.

This was to some extent deliberate - what would be the point of documenting options that do nothing?   They're only there for compatibility with *BSD.

4.2.14 includes support for -m/-s but this is not documented in manpage/helpmessage info documentation.
