You're probably right about the locale. I'm using cs_CZ.UTF-8. With
LC_ALL=C, both variants run faster and the difference is

With cs_CZ.UTF-8, on my machine, your test case takes 2.322s with -i
and 0.464s without -i.

I tested on my Aspell dictionary dump, where the difference is more noticeable:

aspell dump master | head -n 100000 >list.txt

grep 2.21 with -i: 7.336s
grep 2.21 without -i: 0.312s
grep 2.16 with -i: 0.372s
grep 2.16 without -i: 0.431s

With LC_ALL=C, both versions are about as fast.
