In my INN 2.4.3, I see that assertion when there is backlog for my peers.
Otherwise, I do not see it.  It seems that when a peer is not responding,
there are some assertions like this one which are raised.  It is not
a problem except for the innfeed.dropped stuff in your innfeed directory
(and you have to manually process them with "procbatch -vm").
So it is a bit annoying.

No, there is not.
But lots of these assertions were cleaned up by Russ in INN 2.5 (which is
not the stable version of INN, but it is very stable all the same).
