Hello,

this is http://bugs.debian.org/677963 reported by Igor Bogomazov:

--------------------------------------------------
Hello,

$ man find | grep -m1 -A22 -- -size

The manual page find(1) states that -size does not count indirect blocks.
Were it true, it would be impossible to distiguish files >48K. Obviously, -size does count indirect blocks.

The statement «the size does not count indirect blocks» is not clear enough to understand what does it mean in reality. Please, reformulate it.
