Create a directory hierarchy like blah/foo

Execute the following find command using find version 4.3.0 and 4.3.2

find blah -name foo -print -exec rm -rf {} \; -prune

Version 4.3.0 results:

Version 4.3.2 results:
find: could not change to directory blah/foo: No such file or directory

In both cases foo was removed correctly.
