Ubuntu Lucid - it's just on the larger numbers (Gigabytes in size), perhaps over an int32.

slightly tweaked to just give plain integer numbers: find . -name "*${ft}" -print0 | xargs -0 du -c | grep total | awk '{print $1}'

great thanks. awk produces scientific output for some of the numbers, can this be disabled: .fdt 3.15152e+10

This is a count by number of files, not what I was asking - I'd like a total by size.

Thanks, was looking for something that summarized by any extension (as it'd be handy to then sort for example)
