ConstrainedMin: "assertion failed at "\[InvisibleSpace]" after perturbation steplength > 0"

Hi,

I am using Mathematica's ConstrainedMin to solve several
fairly large linear programs with rational coefficients.
(The programs involve several hundred variables and more
than a thousand constraints.)

In several cases, after hours or days of running time I
get the following message printed:

"assertion failed at "\[InvisibleSpace]" after perturbation steplength >
0"

How should I interpret this message? Are the results that
I get after the message (and indeed before it) reliable?

I tried several times to reproduce the message, starting
with a clean session, but it didn't quite work. It seems
that what I did before the call to ConstrainedMin that produced
the message is also relevant.

Did anyone encounter such problems with ConstrainMin before?

Best regards,

Uri
