An example in find.info says

'-perm /022'
     Match files that are writable by either their owner or their
     group.  The files don't have to be writable by both the owner
     and group to be matched; either will do.

I think this is wrong; to match the text, I think the option would have to be
'-perm /220'. Other examples nearby are similar. Patch attached.
