Subject: GNU "fgrep -w" may miss matches


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:

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?
