Inside my custom Problem implementation, I had an assert that was failing, but no output was printed to the screen.  The evolutionary run just crashed without explanation.

Debugging was tricky, because all I knew was that it crashed with "-ea" and didn't crash without it.

Does ECJ somehow suppress assert messages even when asserts are enabled?  Or is it more likely that I somehow managed to do so myself?
