That would be treating the symptoms rather than the cause... But if you 
really want to go down that route, you can catch the message through a 
logging callback.

Not sure about the state of callbacks in the Python bindings though.

That would be no different than calling stop and play again.

I would guess the real problem lies somewhere in the synchronization 
code. I am not familiar with that part of the code though.
