Sometimes there are surprising side-effects.  :)

Yes.  I would assume that the destructor's expectation is legitimate, 
and that the code keeping the container non-empty is in error.  But 
maybe Michael Stahl can tell you more about this; at least, he recently 
changed that assertion into a true one (aborting the program in a debug 
build), so looks like he considers the assertion correct, too.
