A brief overview is not useful for diagnosing a problem. You need to
provide a literal transcript of commands run. Ideally, you need to
provide a set of commands we can use to reproduce the problem locally,
without your system at all.

That assert no longer exists in current versions of the 1.3.x or 1.4.x
branches. So if you upgrade to the latest 1.3.x release the problem
will probably go away.
