I'm trying to cancel a move_base goal sent by the explore node. SimpleActionClient.cancel_goal() doesnt seem to work at all, SimpleActionClient.cancel_all_goals() only works intermittently. I've included the code for my goal cancellation node below:

class cancelGoal():
    def __init__(self):
        self.node_name = "cancel_goal"


        self.explore_goal_sub = rospy.Subscriber("/move_base/goal", 
                                    MoveBaseActionGoal, self.newGoalHandler)
        self.client = actionlib.SimpleActionClient('move_base', MoveBaseAction)
        rospy.loginfo("Wating for move_base server.....")       

    def newGoalHandler(self, new_goal):
        self.client.cancel_all_goals() # Try both
        rospy.loginfo("Goal cancelled")

For the highlighting: apparently a mix of tabs and leading whitespaces does not work.
