Using a Raspberry Pi 2 with Ubuntu 14.04, I can't stop the talker.py example python node) with ctrl-c when run with sudo. This is terminal output when I press ctrl-c. It appears that the node will stop but just keeps on looping.

The process will stop cleanly if I run.
rosnode kill talker
The node is started with a simple launch file.
    <node name="talker" pkg="rasp_pi_test" type="talker.py" output="screen" launch-prefix="sudo -E"/>

Obviously, this example does not need to be run with sudo. A more complicated example with the same problem that involves fast gpio access does need to be run with sudo. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi ryanhowarth, just add required="true" in your tag.

I have the same problem as ryanhowarth and adding the tag required didn't seems to solve the problem
