Waiting for ever for cal_sh_wrj2

Shadow Robot's ROS interface, EtherCAT version

Bug Description

starting the EDC with sr_edc.launch (modified to use pr2-grant)
"Waiting for: cal_sh_wrj2" displays each second endlessly.

Restarting the sr_edc.launch solves the problem.

Occured three times since we have newest shadow_robot_ethercat driver (rev 558). always with wrj2

There should be a maximum tries or a restart of something automatically, or a message asking to restart the driver.

The problem is due to poor implementation in pr2_bringup/calibrate.py. There's a "for name in waiting_for" and sometimes it happens that "waiting_for.remove(obj)" is invoked before the for loop has finished. Then it waits forever for the latest elements of the queue (normally cal_sh_wrj1, cal_sh_wrj2, but sometimes more, sometimes none).
I've sorted that out by adding a 0.5 sec delay in the first message published in sr_mechanism_controllers/srh_fake_joint_callibration_controller.cpp.

I filed a ticket for WG to solve this more properly:
