Does it happen only for this directory?

Do you have any of GREP_OPTIONS or POSIXLY_CORRECT set?
That error generally means that egrep was called with the -F or -G flag
or fgrep was called with the -E or -G flag. Basically, the matchers
(grep/fgrep/egrep) conflict with each other.
I think you can't use egrep with POSIXLY_CORRECT or something like that.
