IIRC if you look at the discussion of that patch, you'll see that the
the reason we didn't do this then is that it seems like this (ie, the
assert) is something that a user _could_ run into in real life. If
that's so then this patch simply covers up a real bug.
It's clear that this test should not be conducted with EOL detection
off; I just didn't want this resolved before we confirmed that that
assert cannot be reached in real life.
i'm not sure what the issue is. malcolm is right that this test is
simply testing the working of eol detection and obviously won't work
when eol detection is not enabled.
