Everyone is completely ignoring one vital point:

Kevin Dalley fixed findutils 4.1-30 *more than a month ago*
to not use '-s /bin/sh'. Not that he updated bug #26827, but we'll overlook
that :)

All that has to be done is have secure-su fixed to Conflict: with findutils
4.1-29, the only version released with '-s /bin/sh'.
