There are several places that are marked with an assert () because a
feature is not fully implemented. They are there so that we notice
missing bits as we go and fix them as needed.
Anyway, if you could post your test programs, I can have a look at what is
wrong executing them and add them to the regression tests so that
the bug doesn't resurface once it's fixed.
