BUG: grep (GNU grep) 2.24

I had generated a FILE by simply doing a 'find' on a directory and used grep to cull the results.  I wasn't working so I repeated and tried the following trivial 'grep':

% wc -l FILE
% grep . FILE

Very wrong. 

I reverted to version 2.21 and everything now works as expected:
% grep . FILE
