Whilst creating a new bug report on this site, 4720, I went to Preview then Save, and received:

You probably caught the server in the middle of an update. Please try and see if you can reproduce this problem.

Later: i just edited that topic, and tried preview-save as Chris describes, and there is defintely a problem.

Confirmed, and priority raised to Urgent.


That shouldn't happen. Curious problem with corrupt topic causing an assertion failure in save. If asserts are disabled, then the problem would just persist in the topic data, so thank goodness for asserts. The topic was probably corrupted when it was saved from a broken TinyMCEPlugin (the timing is right)

Fixed and merged.
