On Windows, in a debug build with bjam:

msvc 6,7,7.1: won't compile
codewarrior pro8: debug/cancel dialog
intel 5,6,7,8: debug/cancel dialog
Cygwin gcc 3.3.1, 2.95.3: runs to completion and returns 0
MinGW gcc 3.2: runs to completion and returns 0
borland 5.5.1, 5.6.4: runs to completion and returns 0

When I uncomment the assert, codewarrior gives me a slightly more
informative dialog and borland and gcc both print useful information
to the console.

I think I'll stick with assert ;-)
