Yeah, it is aliased:

grep is aliased to `grep -i \!*'
grep is /sbin/grep
grep is /usr/bin/grep

What exactly is the problem here?  If I unalias grep it does work.  I
am not sure of what \!* means in this alias.  Could you explain it to
me Paul?  As you may have guessed, I am not the culprit who aliased
grep in .cshrc!
