I would prefer to see some error here instead of an assertion. As soon as we know how to trigger this bug, this will most likely be a remotely exploitable DOS security issue.
The knowledge that is might be remotely (ab)usable, is the exactly why you added the test: It can be triggered by remote users.
I prefer seeing an error 500 in my logs over an httpd instance on a server that is crashed because we added an explicit abort() call.
