If you're talking about a debug mode executable, this would be a bug
IMO. In release mode (NDEBUG defined) every precondition check ought
to be disabled. I'll look at this.

Agreed, the default implementation of the precondition checks will
use assertions in the next release.

Thanks for the reminder ;-) I'm not very happy with this change, as
it breaks the libraries internal naming scheme, but if nobody
objects, I'll change this soon.
