tf/tutorials demo problem ros-electric

Hi All:

I can't get the turtle_tf demo to work based on the following link: tf/Tutorials

This is the error I get when I do roslaunch turtle_tf turtle_tf_demo.launch:

Use arrow keys to move the turtle.
process[turtle2_tf_broadcaster-5]: started with pid [9096]
process[turtle_pointer-6]: started with pid [9101]
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/ros/electric/stacks/geometry_tutorials/turtle_tf/node/turtle_tf_listener.py", line 57, in <module>
(trans,rot) = listener.lookupTransform('/turtle2', '/turtle1', rospy.Time())
tf.ExtrapolationException: Lookup would require extrapolation at time 1321729575.578088045, but only time 1321729575.578494072 is in the buffer, when looking up transform from frame [/turtle1] to frame [/turtle2]

Another post mentions this same problem but they were using diamondback. How do I resolve this on electric?

Thanks in advance.
