There is a regression introduced in findutils-4.2.12.
"xargs -i -s" now results to unexpected "argument line too long" error.

This happens due to new piece of code appered in bc_push_arg():

  /* If this is an initial argument, set the high-water mark. */
  if (initial_args)
      state->cmd_initial_argv_chars = state->cmd_argv_chars;

I don't know how to fix this problem yet.
Attached test case demonstrates the issue.
