Gazebo 7 launching error

Almost every time I run gazebo I get this error.

 terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<boost::exception_detail::error_info_injector<boost::lock_error> >'
  what():  boost: mutex lock failed in pthread_mutex_lock: Invalid argument
Aborted (core dumped)

I have to run it multiple times to get it working. To note that I run it with an empty world, and I spawn a robot in it.

Code for reference:

<launch>

  <!-- these are the arguments you can pass this launch file, for example paused:=true -->
  <arg name="paused" default="false"/>
  <arg name="use_sim_time" default="true"/>
  <arg name="gui" default="true"/>
  <arg name="headless" default="false"/>
  <arg name="debug" default="false"/>
  <arg name="model" default="$(find my_package)/urdf/atlas.xacro"/>

  <!-- We resume the logic in empty_world.launch, changing only the name of the world to be launched -->
  <include file="$(find gazebo_ros)/launch/empty_world.launch">
    <arg name="debug" value="$(arg debug)" />
    <arg name="gui" value="$(arg gui)" />
    <arg name="paused" value="$(arg paused)"/>
    <arg name="use_sim_time" value="$(arg use_sim_time)"/>
    <arg name="headless" value="$(arg headless)"/>
  </include>

  <param name="robot_description" command="$(find xacro)/xacro $(arg model)" />

  <!-- push robot_description to factory and spawn robot in gazebo -->
  <node name="urdf_spawner" pkg="gazebo_ros" type="spawn_model"
        args="-z 1.0 -unpause -urdf -model robot -param robot_description" respawn="false" output="screen" />

  <node pkg="robot_state_publisher" type="robot_state_publisher"  name="robot_state_publisher">
    <param name="publish_frequency" type="double" value="30.0" />
  </node>

</launch>

UPDATE 1 The problem appears when I launch with control parameters. I am using a diff controller to control 2 wheels just for testing and a prism joint that I control also.

UPDATE 2 When spawning without control also. Regards
