Yes, but I couldn't reproduce the bug.

The assertion happens in the Bswitch case of exec_byte_code when it's
running erb--benchmark-monitor-func, and there's only one 'switch' in
the disassembled bytecode, see line 16:

jmp_table.  The assertion violation is at line 1403 in bytecode.c:

            struct Lisp_Hash_Table *h = XHASH_TABLE (jmp_table);

This vector is the constants vector for the byte-code of
erb--benchmark-monitor-func.

When eval-region evaluates the defun for erb--benchmark-monitor-func, it
replaces the symbol's function definition, so it removes that reference
to the byte-code.  AFAIK the only other reference to the byte-code
is on the stack of Thread 7, which is running the byte-code.
