When running with revision 146 (trunk) I get the following when the miner attempts to start:

bitcoind: cryptopp/secblock.h:187: void CryptoPP::NullAllocator<T>::deallocate(void*, typename CryptoPP::AllocatorBase<T>::size_type) [with T = unsigned char]: Assertion `false' failed.

I get a similar error with version 3.11 compile for CentOS 5.5:

bitcoind: cryptopp/secblock.h:187: void CryptoPP::NullAllocator<T>::deallocate(void*, typename CryptoPP::AllocatorBase<T>::size_type) [with T = unsigned char]: Assertion `false' failed.

I have tried wiping .bitcoin directory thinking some old stuff is incompatible, but get the same when starting fresh.
Anyone can help?
Forgot to mention that I only see this error when trying to run bitcoind with sox proxy:

~/bitcoind -proxy=127.0.0.1:10000 -gen -server


My proxy is the ssh channel:

ssh -n -D localhost:10000 someone@somewhere.com "bash -c \"while true; do sleep 100; done\"" &
You can probably just comment out the line
cryptopp/secblock.h:187
  //assert(false);

Let me know if it works, and watch if it memory leaks.

It looks like a template class to make sure the derived class defines its own version of allocate and deallocate.  It would be weird if that was the actual problem and it made it all the way to release.  Probably a false alarm.
