Thank you for your report.

Unfortunately, I cannot figure out the details of the problem.

First, if you are talking about Grep, why do the commands above use
`find'?  Did you mean `fgrep'?  Or did you used the stock DOS program 
named FIND?

Second, what DOS port of what version of Grep do you use?  What does
"fgrep --version" print, and where did you download that port?

Finally, with the DOS port I have on my machine, I cannot reproduce
the problem with a sample file I used instead of your 3.tmp (whose
contents you didn't post).  I used the DJGPP port of Grep v2.4.
