Update of bug #15479 (project grep):

                  Status:                    None => Duplicate              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

Thank you for the report.  I can confirm that this is a bug in grep v2.5.1. 
It has already been fixed in the CVS source repository but (sadly) no newer
version has yet been released.

This bug report is a duplicate of bug #13920 (although that did not mention
"-F" or "fgrep" in its summary until I modified it just now).

Note that the packagers of software for some operating systems build grep
with patches applied, so, for example, the grep v2.5.1 supplied in SuSE Linux
10.0 doesn't have this bug.  When you report another bug, please remember to
say which version of grep you are using and on which operating system.
