Ah, that's likely to be not the real culprit but just the version where
assertions started to be enabled by default on Windows (and other)

A number of assertions might reasonably be replaced by "programming
errors": the main point of an assertion is that LilyPond does not know
how to safely continue on an assertion failure.  A "programming error"
still indicates a "Huh?" moment but does not mean that continuing might
be fatal.

Typical assertions are that some pointer or data structure is valid
before accessing them.  Typical programming errors are unusual values.

Of course, either warrant fixing if they occur.
