Odd problem. Seems to be partly tied to when IFS=\n is used for handling read statements. Can't find a way around it that works reliably, so forced to use
    grep  ... > file; cat file
    grep ... >> tmp; cat tmp; cat tmp >> file; rm tmp

Not near as clean and elegant, and is always after the act, not during it.

I tried variances on several comands like cat, list, echo, and tee is really quite unique in what it does. A simple concept, but a great tool for what it accomplishes.
