   Yes - however I'm in the middle of submitting a bug report against
that (I've just read this when looking for my new account password for
the RH bugzilla), as my testing shows that the FC3 version can (easily)
show up a false hit!

   Here is the example:

my-system*[1] echo "LIN7C 55327" | ../grep-2.5.1a/src/grep -wF -e 5327
-e 5532 
LIN7C 55327

   It shouldn't match that line at all.

   Should I still file the bugzilla report?

   Also, my patch is somewhat simpler than the FC3 patch.
