What version of Grep is that, and when was it compiled?  My copy of
DJGPP-compiled Grep 2.4 doesn't crash on XP.  Perhaps there's
something special about your specific another_command? or does Grep
crash for any command piped into it?

In general, for XP, get the latest binaries from the DJGPP site, they
were compiled with a library which works around bugs in the XP DPMI
server.  Or get the native Windows port from the Gnuwin32 site.
