Closing as a duplicate report (and in any case not a bug).

Duplicate of bug #14619.  use -perm /symmode, not -perm +symmode, since 4.2.25 implements POSIX rules for +symmode which require an exact match.  "-perm +o+rx" is the same as "-perm +o,+rx", which matches files whose permission is exactly 0555 (unlike earlier versions of findutils, where it incorrectly matched files whose permissions included any of 0005).

attached file shows exactly the bug.

Note that the bug apparently exists only in the conversion from
symbolic mode to the octal equivalent. Given perm in octal the
correct result is produced.
