new snapshot available: grep-2.6.16-0152

Here's the latest snapshot.
It fixes a couple bugs introduced in 2.6 and one (the -w + backref)
that was present at least in 2.5.4.  I haven't yet looked back further
than that.

I expect to release a 2.6.1 bug-fix release in 3-4 hours,
but if any new problem comes up, may well defer again,
so now's your chance.

Rats.  As I'm writing this, I realized I forgot
about Tony's Mac OS X test correction.  But that's probably safe,
so there will be at least one more change.

** Bug fixes

  Character classes could cause a segmentation fault if they included a
  multibyte character.  [bug introduced in 2.6]

  Character ranges would not work in single-byte character sets other
  than C (for example, ISO-8859-1 or KOI8-R).  [bug introduced in 2.6]

  The output of grep was incorrect for whole-word (-w) matches if the
  patterns included a backreference.

** Portability

  Avoid a link failure on Solaris 8.
