Erik Helin pointed out to me that the change to the assertion text
from "assert(...)" to "vmassert(...)" might break some existing JBS
RULE comments for matching known failures.

I'll look at how bad this really is, but it seems likely that the
thing to do is to revert the message text back to using "assert"
rather than "vmassert".
