Whenever LC_ALL is set at least to my native locale (I read the same for Japanese), it is extremely slow and unusable for even small text files. Today, whenever I need to use grep(1) I'm automatically prepending it with LC_ALL=C. So far I had no time to investigate the root cause of the problem, as I don't feel like developing grep gplv2 is a good use of resources. A workaround would be to upgrade to gnu grep gplv3 in base or switch to the BSD grep. Are we ready to switch to the BSD grep?
