Summary 0001792: Example 7 needs to use find's -H option
Description This issue was originally raised by St├ęphane Chazelas in 0001776, but was not addressed in the resolution to that bug.

With -L/-H, the behaviour is consistent across implementations as stat() is performed on all files.

In any case, the example at line 97747 is incorrect without -H/-L as test's -nt compares files after symlink resolution (also note that the behaviour varies across test implementations when operand cannot be stat()ed).
Desired Action Fix the example at line 97747 to use -H, and maybe add a "provided both file1 and file2 are accessible".
