If I have understood you correctly, you are asking whether it is expected behaviour for assert to use the global AssertionError instead of the built-in AssertionError.

I don't see why it shouldn't. In any case, that behaviour goes back to Python 1.5 and perhaps older.

I don't think this is a bug, so I'm going to close this. If you disagree, please re-open it with more detail explaining why you think it is a bug.
