this is because there is some navigation toolbar that is implemented in
SwNavigationMgr and which stores its history as SwPositions.
those are not corrected when the node they point to is deleted, hence
the assertion.  a non-dbgutil build would probably crash some time later
when the user clicks the navigation buttons.  apparently kids these days
don't use --enable-dbgutil, so you get bonus points for trying :)  and
i'm happy that i turned this into an assert that aborts and draws attention.

should be fixed now on master and libreoffice-3-5:
