FS#2038 - [18.06.1] Installing package grep breaks /etc/preinit

I receive this error during start-up:

/etc/preinit: line 1: grep: not found

After I have installed the ‘grep - 2.26-1’ package.

BusyBox has it’s grep applet installed in /bin/grep, and the grep package removes this and installs the full version in /usr/bin/grep. For whatever reason /etc/preinit cannot find /usr/bin/grep despite the path being set and including /usr/bin.

Removing the ‘grep - 2.26-1’ package allows the system to revert back to BusyBox grep and /etc/preinit no longer reports an error.
