# test.cpp
#include <cassert>
int main() {
  return 0;

Compiling this with "g++ -o main test.cpp -O3 -Wall" results in no warnings. Running the program shows that the assertion fails, and therefore the code is compiles with optimization and assertion.

This should not generate useless machine code in release mode, since this is an easy optimization.
