OK, well thats why i'm suggesting in such a case, where:

1. this fail isn't considered very important
2. its failing every day or multiple times a day
3. nobody is planning on fixing it anytime soon

that we disable the assert so that when a real fail happens, we know
its a problem.

See my commit:

I feel like we can do these targeted assume()'s or whatever (i limited
this to TestReplicationHandler only on freebsd initially, that seems
to be where it happens the most), and thats very simple. then our
build isn't crying wolf.
