No. The behaviour is well defined.

To repeat what I said in my first post in this thread:

    Although I sympathise with the view that a failed assert
    should be considered undefined behaviour, I personally
    find the current documented behaviour quite useful. I
    sometimes use assert as a convenient way of saying, "issue
    a warning message, but only in debug builds."
