Thanks for reporting the problem.

I have a good idea what the problem is; pred.c calls stat and lstat
without changing working directory.     It was your statement that
it's sensitive to the original working directory that clued me in.

Because this bug is in Debian's BTS and starts off with some
apparently-irrelevant stuff, I have logged this issue in the upstream


That bug contains an explanation and a patch fixing the bug (including
a regression test suite addition).    Meanwhile the "oldfind" binary
built with 4.5.7 should be unaffected.
