Is your alert file larger than 2gb ? It may be related to some 
restriction on the file size (2 or 4 gb, I can't remember). If grep is 
producing a file smaller than 2gb, game is over. You may upgrade your 
perl to an uptodate one 5.8?  It seems perl 5.6.1 is largefile (>2 or 4 
gb) ready. Google for "perl largefile" for more info.
