This is different to the "safe" C and C++ libraries.

Assertions are not compiled in release builds. In the new VS2005 standard
library, there are assertion checks to validate various things such as:
* checking that two iterators being compared are from the same container;
* checking that an iterator hasn't gone past the end of the container.

It may be interesting to see if the following asserts (bug in the runtime
   iterator first = c.begin(), last = c.end();
   if( first == last ) // does this assert?

However, this most likely indicates a bug in that code.

So is the I/O stream implementation inserting a '\0' in the release build as
part of their "safe" runtime library initiative? Or is this in Johnathan's
I/O streams library?
