File​::Find in at least 5.005_02 and 5.005_03 gets very confused if you
pass find() multiple relative starting directories and the wanted() sub
prunes one of them. That's because it does a next in the main loop in
find_opt(), thus skipping the chdir back to the starting directory. I
believe this one-line patch will fix it​:
