I'm using the drc simulator and I've recently updated to gazebo 1.3, since then I encounter the following problem:

If I try to "pin" the robot model too early (publish "pinned" to /mode either from the launch file or from the command line) gazebo crashes. If I wait a little before I publish the message everything seems to work fine.

I also noticed that even though I launch my model with no position controllers started it still stays in a stiff position for several seconds before it collapses, perhaps this is the time when a pin command will crash the simulator?

Any idea what might be the problem?

The DRCRobotPlugin unpins the simulation automatically after 10s.

There was one bug fixed already regarding the mode setting: code fix

Of course you'd have to build from source or wait for the next release to get this fix.
