It means that there's an internal condition in the plugin code that's
been violated. Assertions are generally used to say "this must be true
at this point in the code". 

In this case, it looks like something's not behaving in
ScPlugin::pluginTypeName() that causes execution to "fall of the end" of
series of checks. It's not really best to be using an assertion there, I
should've used a qDebug, but still it's useful to have that information.

It'll give a more useful message in future. Again, this is related to
the issues with faulty dependency tracking for plugins, and you've
sorted that out for now.
