selinux hard link count blues

I'm running Fedora Core 5 on a Sager 5720, installing wine. As part of the process, I have to access the .wine directory. I try to input the command

find / -name ".wine"

And I get the error message

WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /selinux: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.

In fact, the substitution of any filename in the command produces the same error message. I'm guessing this is a problem with selinux. Anybody have any insights into this?

Read this message and the follow ups.

It appears that /selinux creates a virtual filesystem like /proc, and does not represent actual files. So find (and filesystem check, fsck) get confused by it.

I'm not sure what the solution is, but at least you know the problem has been seen before.
