It seems I stumbled upon another NSE assertion similar to negative 
socket timeout which is fixed in 5.51. Last Nmap lines:

NSE Timing: About 84.64% done; ETC: 14:50 (0:01:02 remaining)
nmap: nsock_event.c:375: msevent_new: Assertion `timeout_msecs >= 0' failed.

Will try to repeat it with debug flags. But from my experience with the socket
timeout, probably I will not hit it again...

I checked but it's not obvious to me how it may happen. There's a
negative check in nmap.set_timeout, and I don't think there's another
way to change the timeout that gets passed to msevent_new. If you manage
to get a stack trace I think we can solve it.
