(edit)
The grep applet was ignoring the "-i" command line option if the "-F" option was also used. Consequent to this, the "grep -iF" command incorrectly performed a case sensitive search instead of the case insensitive one. This update applies a patch to ensure that this combination of command line options works as expected.
