I wrote a test case, but did not add new entry.  I want to add it to
news, as the bug is fixed after grep 2.25 release.

The bug is fixed in commit ad468bbe3df027f29ecb236283084fb60b734f68 by

   Grep no longer omits output merely because it follows an output line
   suppressed due to encoding errors.  [bug introduced in grep-2.21]
+  Grep in Shift_JIS locale no longer mistakenly match in the middle of
+  a multibyte character. [bug present since "the beginning"]
 ** Improvements
   grep can be much faster now when standard output is /dev/null.
