I run several times to add object to gazebo, and sometimes my ubuntu just freezed so that my mouse and keyboard all couldn't work anymore.

My system is ubuntu 64 bits with ROS fuerte. I use optirun to run roslaunch.

I use Geforce 630M GT 2GB.

Here is my launch:

  <launch>

    <!-- start gazebo with an empty plane -->
    <param name="/use_sim_time" value="true" />

    <node name="gazebo" pkg="gazebo" type="gazebo" args="/home/sam/code/ros/temp/t1.world" respawn="false" >
    </node>

    <!-- start gui -->
    <node name="gazebo_gui" pkg="gazebo" type="gui" respawn="false" output="screen"/>

  </launch>

Here is my t1.world:

  <launch>

    <!-- start gazebo with an empty plane -->
    <param name="/use_sim_time" value="true" />

    <node name="gazebo" pkg="gazebo" type="gazebo" args="/home/sam/code/ros/temp/t1.world" respawn="false" >
    </node>

    <!-- start gui -->
    <node name="gazebo_gui" pkg="gazebo" type="gui" respawn="false" output="screen"/>

  </launch>

The problem is not really related to ROS. Either your graphics card driver or another driver in the Linux kernel is probably not stable or your hardware is defect (maybe your RAM).
