maybe we should rename this bugreport (if possible) or create a new one and mark this one as a duplicate, as the topic is somewhat misleading. this is for sure, because other bugreports with a more matching headlines are marked as duplicates of this one.
but it's about a bug in relation with the pwc webcam driver, intrepid and different "webcam apps. so it's not only about cheese and one special webcam. we should correct that and reassign the project affected, which should be rather the kernel than cheese.
@Chris S.: when you are sure that your webcam uses the pwc driver, then the uvcvideo driver won't help you, as your webcam won't be supported by it. you have either a pwc or a uvcvideo one. see here: http://www.quickcamteam.net/hcl/linux/logitech-webcams
