debug=true sets OSL_DEBUG_LEVEL and DBG_LEVEL to 2, which means you
don't get just assertions, but also traces (OSL_TRACE). If you just
built with --enable-dbgutil, you wouldn't see more than a handful on a
run (and usually not even that). But, in a pitch, setting dbglevel=1
should help as well.

As to the other part of your sentence: that the code handles some
situation (in the context where assertions are involved, it usually
'handles' it by ignoring it) doesn't necessarily mean you don't want to
know it happened.
