Subject: GNU "fgrep -w" may miss matches

Hi,

There's a bug in GNU grep that causes "fgrep -w" to sometimes miss
matches.  We've had a fix for this (by Pavel Kankovsky) in Owl for a
year now.  Please see grep-2.5.1a-owl-fgrep-w.diff at:

	http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/grep/

grep-2.5.1a-owl-fgrep-w.diff includes comments with problem description
and a testcase demonstrating the problem.

Is GNU grep being maintained upstream these days?

Alexander
