[ros-users] Clearing old obstacles from costmap

Have you tried rotating the robot (even if by nudging it yourself) a few
degrees to either side of the heading it stopped at. Does that clear out the
marked pixels? I've seen some pixels remained marked with high-resolution
costmaps and a laser such as the Sick LMS291 that do pings that have 1
degree of angle between them.
