Interesting.  On both F11 and F12 here:

	# find /etc -size 1G -exec ls -lh \{\} \;

run as root finds files <1G as confirmed by the "ls" bit of the command.

On F11:

	[[email protected] ~]# find --version
	find (GNU findutils) 4.4.0

On F12:

	[[email protected] ~]# find --version
	find (GNU findutils) 4.4.2

Hope that helps.
