After the latest CVE fix I'm getting an assertion failure in tests (below). I
reproduce that both on latest master (846e7eee8) or with 2.21 with patch
83a95bd8c8 applied (2.21 itself is OK).

XFAIL: triple-backref

XFAIL means it's eXpected to FAIL. So when the test fails, that means the test is working (though 'grep' itself has a bug, of course).

The same XFAIL occurs with grep 2.21 on my platform (Fedora 21 x86-64). The underlying bug is platform-dependent. I'm a bit surprised you're seeing the bug with the latest master but not with 2.21, but it's conceivable you've run into a platform dependency, e.g., your grep 2.21 has the bug but the test case doesn't suffice to demonstrate it on your platform.
