find -execdir executes in wrong dir

I just upgraded to version 1.7.7-1 and the following find command is
broken (which used to work correctly in a recent 1.7x version):

C:\cygwin\bin\find . -name file.txt -type f -execdir pwd ';'

Apparently, if there are say 10 matching file.txt files, -execdir
executes the command in the first dir over and over. However, the
following use of find works correctly:

C:\cygwin\bin\find . -name file.txt -type f -execdir pwd '{}' +
