Hi guys,

Recently on -current I launched command like:
find somedir | xargs grep someword

and I received:
xargs: grep: Argument list too long

Of course, providing -n option to xargs solved this problem.
However I wonder is it a correct behaviour of xargs?  I thought one of purposes of xargs
is to have default values to prevent that issue.
