spawning before gazebo 7 is ready - model gets kicked around.
I've just upgraded for ROS-I/Gazebo2 to ROS-K/Gazebo7. If I spawn my robot at the same time Gazebo launches, it gets kicked around in the environment with random velocities. Once it settles down, I can reset the pose and it behaves as expected.
If I spawn the robot after Gazebo launches, all is good.
Any ideas why this might be happening? I've verified that my robot is not in collision with the ground plane, and I can reproduce the error in an empty world. For now, I'm launching the robot and the environment separately.
