Good info.  Epic patch.  Problem sovled, and no fails. 
Google search returns a bug in grep-2.5.1 with Lion + fix:
Mine: grep (GNU grep) 2.5.1

The collection of patches for 2.68b I used is in the repo.
It should be the original 7 in the attachement,
plus Paul's Flaky grep patch
plus Eric's ksh patch
plus Paul's egrep regex too big patch.

And this would be the p1 version of that:

Ok thanks ya'll.
