# Is Pose View in rqt buggy or not finished?

In rqt when I run a rviz and the add a "Pose View" the Pose View seems not to work properly and when I kill it the rviz does not work anymore so that I have to restart rqt.

Is this well known? It seems to me that a lot of the plugins malfunctions so maybe it is just a matter of time before they are finished. Or is this unknown so I should try to report every bug I find?

Edit:

# This will work around any other issues that arise from running OpenGL in a single process.
