Well, you could use -G or -E...

Yes, the -E option should quite likely do anything that really matters...
The point is that kubuntu is my new love, so any tiny flaw seems to be impossible... :)

another option is to recompile the grep your own with the options you want:

apt-get source grep

the modify the rules file according to what you need.

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

and then you should have a nice deb package.
