I just upgraded my GNOME to 2.22 (installed all testing packages), and now cheese doesn't start anymore.

I see it for about a second, and then it disappears...

$ cheese -v
device: /dev/v4l/video0

Sorry, not much information, but I am not sure what's wrong here.

I had the 2.21.5 running without any problems.
This task depends upon

It's an upstream bug fixed in SVN. I'll apply some patches soon and make a rebuild.
