SCUMM: Failed assertion in getBoxCoordinates()

A couple of days ago, there was a very vague report on the #scummvm channel about a failed assertion in getBoxCoordinates():

[11:47] --> mEpHiSt0 joined #scummvm. [11:47] <mEpHiSt0> re all [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> Assertion failed: bp, file engines/scumm/boxes.cpp, line 568 [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> Please contact the application's support team for more information. [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> wtf? [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> mi [11:49] <mEpHiSt0> xp [11:51] <mEpHiSt0> hello!

Possibly related to this, Kirben discovered that the Spy Fox 3 demo can be made to trigger the same assertion, simply by clicking on the satellite. (In fact, you can simply click on the moon, but that's also a kind of satellite, right? :-)

This happens when getBoxBaseAddr() returns NULL. In this case, it does so because getResourceAddress() returns NULL.

So the only relevant piece of information here is that the problem occurs in Spy Fox 3 demo, I guess -- that IRC excerpt is useless, isn't it? It doesn't even say in which game the problem occurs. Or am I missing something subtle in this report?

Well, "mi" *could* mean one of the Monkey Island, but other than that the only test case I know of (so far) is the Spy Fox 3 demo.
