This is likely the same bug I hit yesterday, Hans already came up with a partial fix (there's two issues here, it fixes one) for me. It may also fix for you.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2009-05-29 12:20:06 EDT
Hans, reporter confirms that the scratch build fixes it for him: this is the same report you and I discussed yesterday. Leaving the report open just so we have this tracked in Bugzilla.
Comment 4 Peter Robinson 2009-06-05 19:21:08 EDT
this looks to be fixed in libv4l-0.5.99-1.fc11.x86_64 using both cheese and ekiga, can others confirm this as well?

Ack, this was a libv4l bug, this can be closed.
