bug#27873: 26.0.50; M-x grep broken

From: Eric Hanchrow
Subject: bug#27873: 26.0.50; M-x grep broken
Date: Sun, 30 Jul 2017 00:02:14 +0000

I ran "grep", searching for the word "alpha" in all files in my home
directory.  I happen to know that that word appears exactly once in
those files.

     M-x [execute-extended-command]
     g [self-insert-command]
     r [self-insert-command]
     e [self-insert-command]
     p [self-insert-command]
     <return> [minibuffer-complete-and-exit]
     a [self-insert-command]
     l [self-insert-command]
     p [self-insert-command]
     h [self-insert-command]
     a [self-insert-command]
     SPC [self-insert-command]
     * [self-insert-command]
     <return> [exit-minibuffer]

This displayed a *grep* buffer that looked something like I expected,

* instead of there being exactly one line with some underlining
  (indicating a "hit"), there were a bunch: the one I expected, as well
  as a few before it like this:

    grep: git-repositories: Is a directory
    grep: guix: Is a directory
    grep: homedir: Is a directory
    grep: homework: Is a directory
    grep: iTunesDSM: Is a directory
    grep: jessie64: Is a directory
    grep: local: Is a directory
    grep: log: Is a directory
    grep: mygo: Is a directory
    grep: node_modules: Is a directory
    grep: perl5: Is a directory
    phonetic-alphabet.txt1:Stolen from http://www.fourmilab.ch/documents/phoneticalphabet/
    grep: pprof: Is a directory

  You can't tell from what I've pasted above, but the 9 "Is a directory"
  lines before the actual hit were red and underlined, just like the
  match was.

* Hitting C-x `, instead of visiting the file with the hit, put a
  nine-line-high prompt in the minibuffer, as if it was asking me which
  directory to find the file in a directory with a really weird name.
  (You can see some evedince of this in the "Recent messages" stuff below).
