Bug in find version 4.1.7

I believe I just ran into a (minor) bug that I haven't seen reported in the archives.

When I use find to find and remove an empty directory, find does correctly remove the directory but also displays an error message

    find:  dirname: No such file or directory

I've tried this on three Linux servers running Fedora Core 1 all running the find version 4.1.7 and I was able to recreate the problem with the following steps:

$ mkdir dada
$ ls -F dada
$ find . -name dada -exec rmdir {} \;
find: ./dada: No such file or directory
$ ls -F dada
ls: dada: No such file or directory

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
