Thank you for the report.
A general guideline: when using grep's -r option, there is usually no
need to use "*" to select all (non-hidden) files in a directory.
Instead specify only the directory name (here, "." for current
directory) and no "*", and let grep recursively traverse its
subdirectories. If your use of "*" was intended to expand to a listing
of 617,098 files, I'm not surprised that something went wrong. That
command-line length would typically exceed the maximum allowed on most

I.e., does the problem still arise with this command?

  grep -A 1 -B 1 -e "build " -E -i -r .
