Using grep with pipe to grep (multiple pipes) causes a lockup of the process.
below i the code that reproduces the lockup, it is a while loop, that runs the greps, not that the input file does not have to exist, the lockup will still happen.
After the process is locked in about a minute after ^c the shell displays \"*** WFSO timed out\" message..
bash.exe\"-3.1$ ./bash -version
