The announcement for findutils states:

I was going to say "WJFFM" and point you to
http://cygwin.com/problems.html but then I remembered that I have my
/bin directory mounted with the -X option to squeeze that extra bit of
performance out of cygwin.  When I remove that option, I do occasionally
get the error you reported.

I'll release a new version which fixes this problem, ASAP.
