I could not see that assertion in the 1.34 RC branch? Are your examples
Here's the definition from 1.34:
size_type erase( const key_type& x ) // nothrow
iterator i( this->c_private().find( x ) ); // nothrow
if( i == this->end() ) // nothrow
return 0u; // nothrow
this->remove( i ); // nothrow
return this->c_private().erase( x ); // nothrow
This works fine if the map is empty.
Wheter the overload that takes an iterator should be allowed to accept
the end iterator is another issue. I'll give it some thought.
