we are getting the below assertion failed in libpulse ultimately causes

static pa_usec_t calc_next_timeout(pa_mainloop *m) {
    pa_time_event *t;
    pa_usec_t clock_now;

    if (m->n_enabled_time_events <= 0)
        return PA_USEC_INVALID;

 *   pa_assert_se(t = find_next_time_event(m));* //// assertion failed here
and causes the crash

    if (t->time <= 0)
        return 0;

    clock_now = pa_rtclock_now();

    if (t->time <= clock_now)
        return 0;

    return t->time - clock_now;

this crash happened due to the following API call.


above function causes a crash in libpulse code.
