--- Comment #1 from Philip Hazel <ph10@???> ---
Thank you for this report. There was some very strange code in both pcre2grep
and pcregrep when handling recursive file names and trying to protect against
overlong file names. I have fixed both of them and committed the patches. They
should now be able to handle file name components of any length, up to a
maximum of 2047 for the whole file name. (Each time it recurses down a
directory it gets a 2048 buffer on the stack for the new name. I didn't want to
have to malloc/free each time as that does seem wasteful. There is perhaps a
neater way; I may think about it for pcre2grep. The original code is nearly 20
years old now.)
