when filing bugs, please state against which version you complain.
(in this case, I guess 8-pre something tarball).
when it is not the latest version, check whether it has already been
fixed, as I think for this issue recent versions (svn) are fixed, and
we now have compile time asserts instead of runtime asserts in place.

yes, we probably should upload some new 8pre-something tarballs.
