Entirely possible :)

Laptop is a (now ageing) Dell Inspiron.
btusb           : Broadcom Corp|BCM2045 [Wireless|Radio
Frequency|Bluetooth] (vendor:413c device:8126)

Headset is a Motorola HS810 (also pretty old, but works OK).

I actually also got this assert too (I was doing a bit of Skyping with
my BT Headset yesterday with a (patient) friend in Australia.

D: [pulseaudio] module-suspend-on-idle.c: Source
bluez_source.00_07_A4_10_B0_DD becomes busy.
E: [bluetooth] source-output.c: Assertion
'pa_frame_aligned(chunk->length, &o->source->sample_spec)' failed at
pulsecore/source-output.c:690, function pa_source_output_push(). Aborting.

This one could be a similar issue to one I fixed recently[1] after
merging source output volumes. Certainly it's the same error... not sure
if the fix is the same tho'.

Will have to look at it.
