Hi,

I've encountered weird problem with gazebo. I used to be able to kill gazebo using rosnode kill -a command. But now the gzserver only prints

[ WARN] [1498834601.073564298, 17.450000000]: Shutdown request received.
[ WARN] [1498834601.073614955, 17.450000000]: Reason given for shutdown: [user request]

but won't shutdown anymore. Both gzserver and gzclient are still running. Another weird thing is that I can't even see gazebo_gui node with rosnode list command, but gzclient is running...

I'm using gazebo 7.6 with ubuntu 16.04 and ros kinetic.

I've not used `rosnode kill` for killing gazebo before but it's a known issue that gazebo can take a while to shut down. A more forceful approach is to do `killall -9 gzserver gzclient` which should kill the processes immediately.
