[Libreoffice] two assertions raised and a failed database query

I am asking here about a couple of raised assertions and a
failed database query. Maybe there is a connection, but
My system is ubuntu-natty (11.04), and I did a build with
--disable-mozilla --enable-symbols --enable-dbgutil
and I am submitting a query "select * from AA6411" to a
server running DB2/400. This table is described in bug
34309 "error on importing a timestamp field from db2 via
(*) The program does not show me the data, instead
presenting message box which says "The data content
could not be loaded". "More" shows me
SQL Status: 00000
Error code: 757097269
but the error code seems to change from one run to the
(*) Up to this point, the assertion "operator delete
mismatch" at operators_new_delete.cxx at Line 96 has
been raised five times. (I have reason to believe that
the problem is in the IBM-supplied ODBC driver.
Openoffice.org declared the bug WONTFIX, and I concur.)
(*) Sometimes (depending on what? an envvar, perhaps?), I
see repeated assertions
Error: Invalid node give, only table ref is allowed!
at Line 2770
(*) Under the same conditions, I see repeated assertions, presented in
alternation with the previously mentioned one,
Error: SQL grammar changed! From File
at Line 2778
Note for comparison that (a) the same query delivers data
when I use LibreOffice from ubuntu-natty, and (b) both
versions of LibreOffice deliver data from the similar query
"select * from AA6411V1".
Questions arising ...
(*) Are raised assertions (except this particular operator
delete mismatch, of course) grounds for submitting a bug
report? Always so? I presume a backtrace would be
useful. What else?
(*) Is the message instead of the expected data grounds for
submitting a bug report? Would it be useful to attach
ODBC logs from the query in the two versions of
(*) I come with some time on my hands, moderate knowledge of
C++, and small knowledge of the class hierarchy in base.
Can I hope to make a contribution here worth the
guidance that I would inevitably need?
