I’ve not tested with the agent, but I know that for spicy, I regularly get 
“CRITICAL” about assertions without an abort:

(spicy:53020): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_get: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT 
(object)' failed
(spicy:53020): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT 
(object)' failed

If the desired behavior is an abort, we are not configuring it properly.
