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.

As discussed with James elsewhere the find info file lists under the section "Cleaning Up" a command using the command
find ... -exec rmdir {} \;

This command when used without the -depth option produces an error message but removes the directories as expected.

To avoid confusion about unexpected error messages the documentation could add a note to this effect.
