Obsoleted by bug #11022 is what I meant.

This patch #3801 is completely obsoleted by patch #3644. The shortcoming of this approach are also discussed under bug #11022, which includes its own attached patch which can also be considered obsolete and should not be applied to CVS.

Summary: if grep's output causes the terminal to scroll while grep is printing text with a different background colour, the terminal fills the new line with that background colour and then grep may not fill the whole line with new text, so the end of the line remains the wrong colour.

This patch attempts to print a "clear to end of line" control sequence after the output, which gives the desired effect in this case. I'm not completely sure that this is the right thing to do anyway, though it may be and I can't think of anything better.

However, the current version of the patch appears to miss the "only_matching" and "match_icase" cases.
