Here's an abbreviated example command line that sometimes gives me corrupt output:
#When it feels like corrupting stuff ->

> cat $MY_FILE | grep '^something'

something blah blah chr1 123456 1 0 0

#When it feels like doing it correctly

> cat $MY_FILE | grep '^something'

something blah blah chr1 123456 - 1 0 0

The commands are identical. (Yes, I've strcomp'd them.)
Notice the missing dash after the 123456
Not good.

This is especially troublesome considering grep is essential.
