For those interested here is an updated version of my script but still
no luck :(

#!/bin/bash
rm -f ./found_files
touch ./found_files
find . -exec grep -q "$1" '{}' \; -print >> ./found_files
i=1
while [ $i -le `wc -l found_files` ] ; do
    line=`head -$i found_files | tail -1`
    grep -iv "$1" $line > $line.new
    rm $line
    mv $line.new $line
    i=`expr $i + 1`
done
