Hi Filipe,

Are you running a "Debug" build? If so, then the assertions should be  
on. You can also look at the source code to see where the message is  
being output (each diagnostic has it's own enum name; look at  
Diagnostics.def for them). You can then set a breakpoint at that place  
in the debugger and see what's going on.
