I've added (currently in smoke-me/tonyc/find2perl) some basic tests for
find2perl, including a test and the fix for the problem in this ticket.

Currently it compares the results against find(1) and restricts the
platforms where testing is done to platforms with a vaguely sane find(1)
(eg. not Win32)

If it smokes ok I'll push it to blead.
