It *is* an assertion.  See example at the end for this.  I'm using Boost

Hard to explain and I had trouble narrowing it down.  At the moment I'm
assuming its some threading-related problem in our code.  Thats why I
didn't report it earlier.  Your comment about creating shared_ptrs from
C++ just sparked my interest but from your explanation of the effects, I'm
back to the my-fault assumption again ;-)

Anyways, here's the example for the assertion problem.  It bombs on import.

---- begin
#include <boost/python/class.hpp>
#include <boost/python/implicit.hpp>
#include <boost/python/module.hpp>
#include <boost/python/def.hpp>
#include <boost/python/register_ptr_to_python.hpp>

using namespace std;
using namespace boost::python;
namespace {
        struct me;
        typedef boost::shared_ptr<me> me_ptr;
        struct me {
                static me_ptr create() { return me_ptr(new me()); }
        void print(const me_ptr me)
                cerr << me.get() << endl;
        class_<me, me_ptr>("ME", no_init)
                .def("debug", &print);
        def("create", &me::create);
---- end


Soll doch jeder bleiben, wie er gern wäre.
