With `-b' option GNU grep can output the byte offset of the beginning
of the matching line counting from the beginning of the file, e.g.:

emacs-2:1205:50533:inserts `xyzxyzxyzxyz' in the current buffer.

This format resembles the output of column numbers, but it is not.
It misleads grep.el into interpreting it as a column number.

AFAIK, currently GNU grep doesn't support column number output.
