            Bug ID: 12881
           Summary: 'find' doesn't combine '-exec ... {} +' with
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.33.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: Standard Compliance
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: martijn at inlv.org

  Target Milestone: ---

BusyBox 'find' cannot combine '-exec ... {} +' with parenthesis arguments. This
should work; it is perfectly valid to use it in more complex 'find'

A simple test case:

$ find /dev/null \( -exec printf '%s\n' {} + \)
$ find /dev/null \( -exec printf '%s\n' {} \; \)

The first command prints nothing with Busybox 'find'; it should print
'/dev/null' like the second.
