To follow up on my own post here. The assert in question is:

** ERROR **: file vte.c: line 7602 (vte_terminal_process_incoming):
assertion failed: ((_vte_buffer_length(terminal->pvt->incoming) > 0) ||
(terminal->pvt->pending->len > 0))

But before this I see these kinds of warnings:

** (gnome-terminal:13608): WARNING **: DECSET/DECRESET mode 12 not
recognized, ignoring.

I added a fprintf statement which shows that this only crashes when
*both* of these are '0', but everything is fine when one or the other is

incoming is 0, pending->len is 0

Anyone got a clue what's up here?
