I'm reliably informed (by the dpkg maintainers) that dpkg-diverting
conffiles like /etc/cron.daily/find is not supported and *will* cause
problems. Just leave /etc/cron.daily/find where it is and edit it such
that it'll exit immediately; then you can create a new
/etc/cron.weekly/find which does that job.

This may not be your problem, but it may help anyway.
