It was stupid of me to assume that this was just a generic find problem.
If I'd actually checked the error log I would have seen this:
assertion "state.type != 0" failed: file "/usr/src/findutils-4.5.3-1/src/findutils-4.5.3/find/ftsfind.c", line 475, function: consider_visiting
This is apparently caused by a symlink that looks like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 cgf None 6 Jul 9 2005 n -> //none
I don't remember creating that symlink. Apparently I was checking on
creating symlinks to nonexistent domains back in 2005.
I don't know if this is a find bug or a cygwin bug. I could see it
being either or both.
