Originally this assertion was unconditionally aroused on every getHostInfo() invocation from the EDT. Later this was fixed but, unfortunately, after release68.
It would be very desirable to have this fix in release68_fixes.
The changeset is http://hg.netbeans.org/cnd-main/rev/5788392884c0
The fix is in the trunk since Nov 11...
Just to make it more clear why it is desired to have this fix:
If user switches assertions ON while running nb, (s)he will start to get this assertion... While working on a standalone dlight tool (that is based on 6.8.1 codebase) assertions are switched on (because they are usually useful while development)... And this assertion appears in situations where it should not..
So, for users of release version of NB (with no assertions) there will be no any difference... But it is very annoying while development..
verified in trunk build 201001150201
The fix has been ported into the release68_fixes repository.
can not be verified in NB
