I changed it to an assert in the SVN trunk.

Note: I opted not to use dIASSERT(), although this one gives a nice abort,
and is used throughout ode, it turned out that nowhere in GIMPACT any
reference is made to ODE includes. I did not wat to polute the GIMPACT src
with ODE includes, so I use assert.h which was already used in GIMPACT, so
it cannot break any builds.
