Thanks for providing this information.  It looks like a bug in grep,
and thus I think its maintainer wants to know about it.

Could you please write to the list the output of
  grep --version

and roughly the size of the files in that directory tree?  Maybe also
the operating system you use.  The maintainer may have more questions
about this issue.
