The only "fix" I can think just now is to stop testing the exit status of

I'd first try to see if the test succeeds again if run under
$POSIXLY_CORRECT being set. From grep 3.4's man page:

I have tried. It didn't work, as I suspected, because the change in grep does not seem to check POSIXLY_CORRECT:


But even if it had worked, the exit status of grep when using '-L' is now "contaminated"; maybe the same change has been made, or will be made, to other non-GNU versions of grep.
