Atlas failing in Boston Dynamics Controller demo

Following instructions for the Boston Dynamics Controller I always end up with the robot failing after trying to perform the first step.

I've uploaded a video to show the problem: http://youtu.be/ACivMqVeA4U

I'm using latest stable 64bits packages: gazebo 1.6.1-2~precise and drcsim 2.3.0-3~precise. I've detected that my real time factor is lower than tutorial pictures: 0.22 just after launch the simulator and robot.

Computer is an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core, 32Gb RAM and Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX. Useful output from launch could be:
