Description shez 2007-02-05 16:14:08 EST
Description of problem:
grep -F --line-regexp returns incorrect results on a simple file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
grep -F -i --line-regexp -f  /tmp/test.txt /tmp/test.txt
test.txt contains:

Not all of the lines are returned, which they should be.  This works correctly 
in grep-2.5.1-31
Comment 1 Nick Lamb 2007-02-06 05:41:03 EST
With version grep-2.5.1-54.1.2.fc6 on Fedora Core 6...

Works as intended in 'C' locale, but some lines are not returned in locale
'en_GB.UTF-8'. Specifically the LC_CTYPE locale setting influences this bug, so
maybe it's caused by misuse of one or more C library character type functions or
macros like the isspace() family.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 15:35:36 EDT
This was misfiled against FC4. Moving.
Comment 3 Stepan Kasal 2007-11-06 10:01:06 EST
Verified that the bug still exists in 2.5.1-57.fc7.
Added -i to the summary of the bug; fgrep works without that.
