That's a feature, not a bug :-). It reminds people to use 'grep' rather than an obsolete extension.

Please provide a testcase for your bug, I'm not sure whether I
understand it.

Ouch, in looking back at it I now see that *I* misunderstood it. You're correct: that "if" statement avoided the problem that I saw. The point remains that the previous code was Too Complicated, though.

Perhaps in penance I should write the little C wrappers I was talking about.
