Follow-up Comment #14, bug #12162 (project findutils):

As near as I can tell, find is broken when it comes to -size.
It fails to realize that a 3200 byte file has a size which is
less than 1M, as evidenced by the failure of ... -size -1M ...

Reading comments here leads me to believe: whereas other people
are likewise confused, nevertheless somehow the behavior of
find is thought in some sense to be correct.

Would someone please explain -- completely and carefully -- just
exactly how find's behavior is actually correct?  It does not 
seem to me that the man page (or info) adequately explains this

Thanks in advance.
