Description Bob Clary [:bc:] 2011-07-10 11:27:14 PDT
2. Abort 

I reproduced locally on Mac OS X 10.5 with an Aurora build from 7/8 but not a Nightly from 7/8. I just rebuilt Nightly and could reproduce there. Not sure this is a regression though.

Fix assertion

This can happen if aInputStream actually has more than aCount bytes to hand back, which can apparently happen in some cases....  we were ending up with toRead > aCount and hence n > aCount.  In this case it's safe, I think, but better to not do that.
