Thanks for your report.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.

Please contact official Red Hat Support at https://www.redhat.com/apps/support/ to
allow correct prioritization of this issue.

I'm sorry for not addressing the issue in RHEL-4.  As findutils is not scheduled for update in RHEL-4.9, I'm closing the bug as WONTFIX.  You are welcome to update to RHEL-5, where the bug is no longer present.
