I plan to change GNU grep to use this new facility, and to add some grep test

I did that by installing the attached patches into the grep master. This fixes the bug for me, so I'm closing the bug report.

These patches mostly just report the fix and add test cases. The actual fix was in gnulib, here:


This gnulib fix works around the underyling glibc facility which caused the problem, for which I've filed a bug report here:


It's not clear when the glibc bug will be fixed. Until it is, one should expect similar problems to crop up in applications other than 'grep'.
