@Giles - that works fine without -L, but once I add -L, the -lname expressions don't work any more (as the man page says they won't). So basically I then need some conditions to follow symlinks and others not to!

Thanks! -prune is just the sort of thing I was looking for. I've found that find ~ \( -lname ~ -o -lname ~/\* -o -lname / \) -xtype d lists all the symlinks that I don't want to follow; I'm now trying to find a way to use that query to prune.
