I found a case where the second condition is required.
Its in push_relabel_max_flow:

       while (1) {
          out_edge_iterator ai, ai_end;
          for (ai = current[u], ai_end = out_edges(u, g).second;
               ai != ai_end; ++ai) {
            edge_descriptor a = *ai;

current is an vector of edge iterators. Notice the call to out_edges.
This should be relatively easy to fix by storing the end iterators as
well as the current iterator.
