Thanks; I think I've fixed this assert in r13153:
It'll be part of the 0.2.0.16-alpha release whenever that comes out.
(In the future, if you say what Tor version you're using (I think you
were using 0.2.0.15-alpha), and exactly what the assert error is, that
will help me to track these down faster.)
