 I get this with Insight 6.6, but have no corresponding problem when I
 use gdb, even the one that has been built in the insight bin directory.
 Here's a test program (compiled with the command line g++ -g itest.C -o
 int main () {
   char *p =3D (char*)0;
   return 0;
 To trigger the problem, break on the return statement, and then either:
    a. Select the expression '*p' in the second line.
    b. Float the pointer over the highlighted expression. So long as it
 is over the '*', it shows 'p=3D(char*)0', but as soon as it touches the
 'p', the assertion fires.
    Or try to set *p as a watch expression.
 In gdb, the equivalent actions, 'p *p' and 'watch *p', simply elicit
 'Cannot access memory at address 0x0'.
