Last time you gave this command line, your final filename had only one
period in it. Now it has two. This can be one reason why people giving
help want to see copy-pasted inputs and outputs, not things filtered
through people's heads :-)
Since the segfault is arising during the handling of files early in
grompp, perhaps this double period is the cause of the problem (even
though it should not be a problem in principle!). Try a normal filename
with one period.
