Still broken. Never heard anything back on this. I don't see
anything in NEWS saying that this change is by design. It is
an annoyance, IMO.

The first time you use `grep', there is no problem, but if you
repeat `grep' from the *grep* buffer, point ends up at the end
of the output.

FYI, I'm using Cygwin grep (but I don't imagine it makes a difference).
