This is a bug that was addressed in and should be fixed in ros-kinetic-ros-comm 1.12.6

Same issue here.

Maybe /use_sim_time is active but no bag is played? This would mean that time does not go forward and hence the sleep would never expire.

2016-08-18 09:53:41 -0500 answered a question Last node handle goes out of scope but callbacks still work. Why?

If you look at , the Subscriber keeps a copy/reference to the node handle. So as long as it exists, there is yet another referenced handle that will prevent the node to shut down.

Did you source your workspace's setup.bash?

I would assume each nodelet is in a different namespace, and so would be the parameters.

2015-10-14 02:05:21 -0500 answered a question How to set and access local parameters when launching a nodelet?

To pass a parameter value to a nodelet, try either passing it as an argument on the command line when you run the executable that loads the nodelet (i.e. "_param:=value") or set the parameter using ros::param::set("~param", value).

In either case the nodelet should be able to access it using getPrivateNodeHandle().getParam("param", value).
