Importing multiple Orocos/ROS packages in an RTT .ops script

I've recently refactored some Orocos/RTT components into a couple different ROS packages. I have an Orocos .ops script for testing each collection of components separately, but when I create a third package for testing integration, and combine the contents of the two other .ops scripts, they no longer run without segfaulting.

The odd thing is that it complains about one or the other library as being already loaded, and says "try to RELOAD":

3.834 [ Warning][DeploymentComponent::import] Library /home/jbohren/versioned/ros/bard/bard_controllers/lib/orocos/xenomai/ already loaded... try to RELOAD

then it's the other library which causes a segfault on import:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

    t1=..., t2=...) at /home/jbohren/versioned/ros/orocos_toolchain/install/include/rtt/internal/../internal/Invoker.hpp:125

Is anyone familiar with problems arising from factoring and combining components from multiple ros packages in a single orocos script?

It turns out this was happening because the component libraries had the same name even though they were in different paths. I was still using the default name for the libraries in each CMakeLists.txt file, ie:


orocos_component(components src_1.cpp src_2.cpp)


orocos_component(components src_3.cpp src_4.cpp)

So giving these unique names solved the problem.
