[Dirvish] find looping?

Has anybody had any problems with find looping?
I occasionally find in the morning that my overnight dirvish script
hasn't finished because one of the jobs is blocked. When I look with
top, I always discover a 'find' is hogging the CPU:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
19073 root 39 15 2924 704 2752 R 99.9 0.0 1833:14 find
ps tells me a little about the process and its parent:
root 19073 19055 98 Feb02 ? 1-06:44:52 find
root 19055 18998 0 Feb02 ? 00:00:02 /usr/bin/perl
/usr/local/sbin/dirvish --vault suse3-root --image-time 22:00
I find that if I just kill the find everything carries on approximately
normally. I haven't even bothered to check the state of that particular
backup because I have yesterday's and I will have tomorrow's :)
But I'm beginning to think about investigating it, so before I do I
wondered if anybody else had seen the same problem?
