I suppose it's because of that. I just tried running stress testing with
indexes disabled, but I couldn't reproduce this.

I probably could get it fixed if I looked hard enough at the code, but
I'd rather use my time to make a stable v1.1.0 release. Its indexing
code has had major changes, and this assert doesn't even exist in it
