Ok so here is what I ended up doing. I found this answer from @nkoenig in which he suggested removing "localhost" from the "::1" line of /etc/hosts. I am not sure this is a good long term solution, but it solved my start-up problem and now gazebo runs fine. I used spawn_model to load in my robot and that worked great as well.

I think I will stick with using gazebo through ROS for now, since the ability to use URDFs really simplifies my workflow.

There are still some issues with gazebo not finishing cleanly when you click the x to close the simulation window. Sometimes there is still a gazebo process running in the background, which then causes a segmentation fault the next time you try and roslaunch gazebo_world <foo.launch>.

I hope this can help anyone else having this problem.

Cheers, Kel Guerin
