The problem is the crash that will occur when you dereference the pointer in

  if (pth->Reserved2)

If pth is NULL, for which you check afterwards (never reached in this case!),
the program will crash.

As for the assertion, it will throw a fatal exception if it is not fullfilled
instead of just returning.
