    You did and gave the right answer.  I had forgotten about
empty -- though not sure why.  I guess I usually only use it for file
normally. For empty directories under /tmp, I usually use 'rmdir *'.

What I meant was, I blindly trusted "-d" to select directories. It doesn't. One has to explicitly say '-type d' to do that. 'man find' explains.
