Thanks for the report.  This has already been fixed in CVS.

Why do you say that the Fedora Core 4 patch does not work?  The Fedora Core 4 grep RPM package certainly does work with your example.

$ grep -F -w fo /tmp/testfile
$ rpm -q grep

There is problem with grep version 2.5.1 and 2.5.1a (2.4.2 is ok)

$ (echo 'foo';echo 'fo') > /tmp/testfile
$ /tmp/grep-2.5.1/src/grep -F -w fo /tmp/testfile
$ /tmp/grep-2.4.2/src/grep -F -w fo /tmp/testfile

Another example

$ cat T3

$ cat T1 sdfgsdfhdryjh sdfgfjuufykt hgj6rjesrjtyt thyrior4j yjrutjetsju

$ /tmp/grep-2.5.1/src/grep -F -w -f T3 T1

$ /tmp/grep-2.4.2/src/grep -F -w -f T3 T1 yjrutjetsju

Fedora Core 3 has working version of grep 2.5.1 and patch is available as grep-2.5.1-fgrep.patch (patch from FC4 does not work).
