Not sure how to report this...
I'm no longer getting the ABRT error, however I can't say things were totally normal.
At first I tried to take a photo and after the countdown and flash, it simply locked up with 'There was a problem getting video from the camera.' (or something similar). Then I tried video, which worked great.
Then I went to the also-malfunctioning gnome-control-center User panel and tried to take a photo there for the profile image, which failed with the same g_type_check error.
Then I browsed to the ~/Photos/Webcam folder, and finally I decided to relauch cheese and take another photo. And then it worked.
I went back to gnome-control-center to try again, but got the no video feed icon. I realised I had cheese open, so I closed it and re-tried. Then I tried to take the profile photo, and it seemed like it might work - but then it came back with the no video icon and I couldn't get video anywhere.
After a while, I was able to use cheese again - with no more problems. But control center never works.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 21 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing cheese-188.8.131.52-2.fc21'
as soon as you are able to.

then log in and leave karma (feedback).
Checked the trace, and the control center issue now appears to be a different function. So this patch does look like it fixes at least one issue there. I've opened a new ticket for the new error in control-center.
Discussed at 2014-09-10 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2014-09-10/f21-blocker-review.2014-09-10-16.07.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception - Cheese is a high-profile component and commonly used/tested on live images, so it'd be good to fix this for those.
cheese-184.108.40.206-2.fc21 has been pushed to the Fedora 21 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
