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
