Serves me right for not running 'cygport findutils-4.3.2-2 check', since I
had already checked that my patch fixed 'find -P /absolute', and since I
already _knew_ it would fail (thanks to my administrator rights tickling
testsuite bugs on the -readable predicate).  Had I run the testsuite, I
probably would have found out about my brokenness in 'find -L' and 'find
- -P relative'.

And to put more egg on my face, check out what I wrote as I submitted my
- -2 version hack upstream:,
especially the "Hack - use at your own risk".

Feel free to send a hippo after me today - I certainly deserve it.
