Does this frequently crash for anyone else?

Good job by the way. I was playing with the libfreenect last week and sat
down to write a ros node this weekend and you guys already have it done!

I hope that someone will soon figure out how to get all the other stuff
working, like the 3 axis accelerometers, microphones and the motorized tilt
