Thanks for the patch.   I added a ChangeLog entry (which findutils
still maintains "manually"[*]), applied and pushed it as
68e2b1d6fd420787903142c02ce1a5e3ea2a7754.   Thanks again for your
contributions to findutils.

[*] There is actually IMO no reason to continue to maintain ChangeLog
manually, we should be able to generate the ChangeLog file from git
commit messages (at least those more recent than the start of Jan
2008) with some small automated edits (typo fixes, etc).   Other GNU
projects already do this, and so we should be able just to use the
infrastructure they built for this.

I won't be able to get to this any time soon at all (I already have a
bug backlog for findutils on Savannah (see

Volunteers to help with the ChangeLog conversion or with the bugs
generally would be very welcome indeed.

Thanks again to you and to Dan Jacobsen of course for spotting the problem.
