#5724: 'find' function not working in Terminal

 ''From Terminal:''

 find . -name filename -print[[BR]]
 find: Filesystem loop detected; '/versions/run.650' has the same device
 number and inode as a directory which is 3 levels higher in the filesystem

 Note that 'find' works if only a specific directory is selected to be
 searched, but if I knew which directory the file was in, I wouldn't need
 to use 'find'.

 Could this just be a corrupt inode issue? I was thinking of running fsck,
 but I'm a bit nervous about breaking something.
