I'm staring at the .ll file diff, trying to figure out what went wrong.
There are several small differences, and I wonder if they are for things
like order of evaluation, where the only difference is a use-list order

Yep, that test case doesn't produce an assertion for me. Crud. What's a

Most Windows remote access solutions tend to take over the primary screen,
unless you have some server OS variant, so if you want to debug it directly
you'd want to rig up a local VM. This is doable, there are gwindows images
you can fetch, but I'll let you know why I give up over here. :)

Here's the function we assert on:

; Function Attrs: noreturn nounwind
define internal void
@"\01??$assert_cast at PAVRedeclarableTemplateDecl@clang@@@@YAPAVRedeclarableTemplateDecl at clang@@ZZ"()
#4 {
  tail call void @"\01?llvm_unreachable_internal at llvm@@YAXPBD0I at Z"(i8*
getelementptr inbounds ([16 x i8]*
@"\01??_C at _0BA@OELEAIJA at bad?5assert_cast?$AA@", i32 0, i32 0), i8*
getelementptr inbounds ([51 x i8]*
@"\01??_C at _0DD@BABLEMGH@?4?4?2tools?2clang?2lib?2Serialization@", i32
0, i32 0), i32 2108) #12, !dbg !34160
  unreachable, !dbg !34160

There are no diffs in the code, but here's some related debug info that is
suspiciously different:

-!1590 = metadata !{metadata !"0x2e\00assert_cast<clang::NamespaceDecl
*>\00\002107\001\001\000\000\00256\001\002107", metadata !13, metadata
