I updated to the latest svn version of uvcvideo - there were a few
changes, not sure if they were applicable to my camera though. I
haven't been able to reproduce any errors this morning, so perhaps the
bug is gone.
There doesn't appear to be anything about in dmesg. The camera works
fine with cheese, and xawtv. There was some warnings thrown by
xawtv, I'm not familiar with it so I'm not sure if they're normal or
not. I've included them below.
This is xawtv-3.95.dfsg.1, running on Linux/x86_64 (2.6.26-2-generic)
