Can anyone remember seeing this assertion? It's a repetitive occurrence, so an avoidance strategy is sought ( a.k.a. "a clue" :)

Hi Breck,

Is this on Linux? There is a bug (CR #725718) that can result in this assertion on "newer" versions of glibc. Was to OS recently updated?

The bug is fixed in,, 16.0.1271+ (and 17!)

Yes, indeed, it is on Linux, THANK you!

Are the V11 Linux EBFs floating around somewhere? I have 3158 for Windows but not Linux.

...and yes, you get the extra points.

That's the good news...

NO DATA AVAILABLE for me, even with an S user id.

Well, for me there certainly are EBFs available down to SQL Anywhere 9 when I search for "Downloads" and "SQL Anywhere XY" in the SAP Portal "Software Downloads" page (just the page I also use to get fresh v17 EBFs). That doesn't help you, I know...
