Problem with find(1)

I use the following commands to look for large news postings:

cd /usr/spool/news/unix-pc/general
find . -type f -size +3500c -print -exec fgrep Subject: {} \;

However, the "find . -size +3500c" doesn't work on my 3b1. :-(
NO files are EVER found - whether larger or smaller than 3500 characters.

It does work on other machines... any idea what's wrong?

I'm running a 2mb/67mb system with the 3.5 Foundation, 3.51m kernel, and 3.51
Development set.
