findutils-4.5.4 in Gentoo in current state per submission date, with vanilla
kernel, has the following inexplicable behaviour:

1. Do emerge =findutils-4.5.4.

2. Create a new file.

3. Do find . ! -user myself

3. find prints that file, although ls -l clearly says it is owned by me. 
Also, it reports as not owned by me some seemingly random other preexisting

Neither there are any inconsistencies in manipulating that file (i.e., I can
write to it or delete it), nor doing chown myself:myself that_file affects
subsequent find results. Reproducible on ext2, ext4 and XFS, on both i686 and

The previous version (findutils-4.5.3) works just fine.
