[ros-users] flat surfaces become "waved" using stereo_image_proc

I haven't used stereo_image_proc in a while, but those 'waves' are
what the subpixel interpolation is supposed to avoid. Each 'wave'
corresponds to a discrete pixel disparity. So the interpolation is
either not working, or not working well enough. I would check whether
the interpolation is enabled. Also, you might want to ask at
