Hmm, AFAICS this is totally unrelated.

If you get a CPU time limit abort than this can have two reasons:

1) You got an awfully slow CPU (very unlikely, if you bought your
machine in the last 10 years and is x86 or x86-64)

2) Something causes PA to enter an endless loop which causes it to eat
100% CPU.

In all the cases I managed to track down #2 is caused by a faulty ALSA
driver where poll() signalled readiness while there actually was
nothing to do. This happened with drivers which required the "multi"
libasound module, such as emu10k.
