Re: A question about the find command

Find makes a list of files/dirs to be searched before it begins with the actual search.
By the time it returns to the dir. to search a file, if any of the earlier listed files/dir. is not present, it gives this message.

As you may be knowing /proc maintains a file for every process. I guess so many files in /proc might have exited during the find's execution.
