Stopping esp timer generates exception

Postby hetal.panara82 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 4:26 pm

I am working with ESP32 Dev kit V1.
As I load example program, esp_timer from package it works fine and I see one shot timer and periodic timer working fine as expected.

However if I create a task and initialize timer (copy paste from example), I see timer is started as expected (based on the logs it prints). I have assigned a callback which,
1. printf a log statement
2. stop timer by calling, (code snippet attached)

Here, as soon as it calls stop timer, it generates exception and reboots. Any clue? It seems to be the same example code which I have added as part of my new task which I am calling from app_main routine.
After initializing the gpio and timer, task is there in while loop so as not to end it

 * Brief:
 * This test code shows how to configure gpio and how to use gpio interrupt.
 * GPIO status:
 * GPIO18: output
 * GPIO19: output
 * GPIO4:  input, pulled up, interrupt from rising edge and falling edge
 * GPIO5:  input, pulled up, interrupt from rising edge.
 * Test:
 * Connect GPIO18 with GPIO4
 * Connect GPIO19 with GPIO5
 * Generate pulses on GPIO18/19, that triggers interrupt on GPIO4/5
