bug#24024: grep: Mixing "max-count" and "after-context" outputs too few

Given after-context=3 it is expected to output at least 4 lines
as documented, but adding max-count=1 makes it stop on the next
matching line.

Thanks for reporting this. Although grep's behavior is documented ("context does not include matching lines" in the node General Output Control) the documentation could be clearer and I installed the attached patch.
