[FFmpeg-user] ffplay RTP: dropping old packet received too late

I have a machine which streams live audio to a multicast address:  ffmpeg
-f alsa -i hw:0 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k -f rtp rtp:// I catch that stream with ffplay: ffplay rtp:// works fine until I stop ffmpeg and start it again.
If I restart ffmpeg (when ffplay still running), I get the error message
from ffplay: RTP: dropping old packet recieved too late. Is there a
solution to "re-receice" the newly started stream, without restarting
