Fw: grep recursive problem

I am trying to find text in some files and it works fine when I type the 
following command from inside the directory where the file contains the text 
searched for:
grep -r -i i80word *.php

However if I go one directory up and type the same command, there is no result 
at all, like if the '-r' otion would not be taken into account. I tried 
--recursive but the result is the same.

I think that this is a bug, could you please confirm ? I am using grep V 2.5.1. 
Doing searches into big directories the search is very quick, really like if 
the '-r' option would just be ignored.

I stay available for any test.
