I asked Richard about this. I'm quoting him:

  The sqlite3_column_blob() interface used to return an arbitrary pointer
  for a zero-length BLOB.  This seemed goofy, so we changed
  sqlite3_colum_blob() to always return a NULL pointer for a zero-length

In short: the assertions in monotone are bogus. An update of monotone
should fix this.
