The build succeeds buts the verify.bsh fails.

File: D:\ide\maven\maven-assembly-plugin\target\it\projects\container-descriptors\custom-containerDescriptorHandler\assembly\target\assembly-1-bin\b\file.txt
should not exist, but does.

Looking at the verify.bsh I think it expects to see a/file.txt merged
with b/file.txt into file.txt.
However all three files exist in the target directory and /file.txt is empty.
