I had a post on this recently, wish I could find it in the archives...

So, the problem with stopping streaming is that the work function will
return zero and the scheduler marks the block as done.

So, if you take this changeset here. You should be able to stop and
restart a running USRP without problem.

Use the following methods on the block:

and if you want to be precise about time, call
usrp->set_stream_time(...) before calling start()
