Hi, There!

On a newly installed (vanilla), when I do a

root@testserver: /$ find | grep something.conf

I get

find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for .: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.

According to google, this might be a kernel bug due to some problems in /proc, see:
Well, how to debug that problem?
