Sorry, I thought you had read my earlier post about this. I found some
invocations of BOOST_ASSERT which don't use an expression with int
type. When BOOST_ASSERT falls back to the standard assert macro it may
work or not, depending on what the underlying C library does. See the
last part of this message:


Frequently the C library adds a 0 != in front of (expr), uses a ?:
operator, or ||, so that everything works as expected (and, in fact,
C99 extends the specification to allow any scalar expression --as
that's easy to deal with for the library). But that's not guaranteed.
