For the record, I actually was in the process of checking this problem
when Pierre sent in the patch.  I was starting at the line of code that
he fixed and didn't see anything wrong with it.  :-( The variable mixup
that he spoke of is one that I make all of the time.  It's good to see
that I'm not alone.

And, it's wonderful to see people fixing bugs.  This bug really just
kept the status quo going for a couple of months.  However, 1.3.18 is
right around the corner.

The only thing that I don't understand is why rebuilding grep supposedly
worked.  I thought that maybe grep had a test for "can I open
directories" but it doesn't.

I'm almost tempted enough to think about rebuilding grep on windows 95 but...
