I have a custom plugin that is designed to drive a robot via protobuf messages.

When I place this robot into an empty world, it begins locking out gzclient - while gzserver keeps running fine.

The run of gzclient looks like this:

Starting program: /usr/bin/gzclient-2.2.2 
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/i386-linux-gnu/".

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

The CTRL-C comes after it has locked out for at least a minute.

The backtrace:

You shouldn't call transport::init or transport::run inside a plugin. Transport setup is handled for you.

As per nkoenig above - my error was in calling transport inside of the plugin.
