Is this still happening for you with the cheese 2.23.90 in rawhide ?
I have such a cam and have just tested cheese 2.23.90 with it and I have no issues. As such I believe this bug can be closed.
This is with the latest gspca driver which is being merged into 2.6.27 .
I strongly believe this is fixed in current rawhide (as I've seen the same crash myself and fixed it), hence I'm closing this bug. If it is not please reopen this bug.
