Hi, I have been using rqt-rviz to see the data from my kinect (via openni) but everytime I try to save a file, any kind (image, configuration file,etc.) the "save as..." window opens but it doesnt load nor say anything, just gray. And my ubuntu screen gets darker (like when programs crash). When I type CTRL-C in the terminal I get this error:

[ INFO] [1365896813.550288513]: OpenGl version: 3.0 (GLSL 1.3).
python: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.
python: /usr/include/boost/thread/pthread/recursive_mutex.hpp:92: boost::recursive_mutex::~recursive_mutex(): Assertion `!pthread_mutex_destroy(&m)' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Please file a ticket on, provide your RViz configuration file or list what are the Display types that are active (you might be able to save the config when the Kinect is not running).

Thanks, I just did. Also, just checked, and the error does not happen if I had not launched openni first. But it does happen even if I launch rviz alone (no rqt)
