Thanks for such a quick reaction

I've changed my mind.  "%h" now expands to "." instead of nothing when the matched file is in the current directory.   The documentation has been updated to make this clear.   The test suite also now contains a test for this case.

Fixed in CVS.  The result should now be

# find.fixed Makefile po/Makefile -printf 'pathname:%h/%f\n'

Here %h expands to nothing where there is no slash in the filename.   That seems to me to be most consistent withthe documentation.

Wrong result for files without slashes:

# find Makefile po/Makefile -printf 'pathname:%h/%f\n'
/Makefile  <===== ??!

Patch fixes this:
# find.fixed Makefile po/Makefile -printf 'pathname:%h/%f\n'
