I suggest you run this script (the script was added in PulseAudio 13.0,
but probably works with 12.0 too):


Then create a bug report at 
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/-/issues/new and
attach the pa-info output (the output will be too large for the mailing
list, and it's anyway better to deal with bugs in the issue tracker).
