grep: Unmatched [ or [^ - boot message after recent update

Hi - just done:

# pacman -Syu

as per normal once every 3 days or so and have noticed on boot up now after it says:

"Starting hotplug daemon"

it comes up with:

grep: Unmatched [ or [^

and then goes onto:

"Starting networking"

and carry's on as normal after that, log in etc -

I think the update pulled in recent versions:

gcc 4
kdelibs
glibc
binutils
gnome-vfs

and one or two other packages.

Does anyone know what the issue is ? - thanks.

Re: grep: Unmatched [ or [^ - boot message after recent update

I have tried to run all scripts in /etc/hotplug.
I think the problem is in /etc/hotplug/usb.rc script
# /etc/hotplug/usb.rc stop
# /etc/hotplug/usb.rc start
grep: Unmatched [ or [^

Just to make a crossconnection to the bugtracker:
http://bugs.archlinux.org/?do=details&id=2657

The new glibc in testing has a broken regexp code
