Comment 19 for bug 563862

For me, blacklisting gspca_vc032x doesn't change a thing: Booting still takes a long time, then on logon, I get the "Power Manager not responding" window.

More annoying is that sometimes the "Shutdown" item on my panel gets disabled: It changes from red to gray, and it no longer responds. There's no longer any way to shutdown or restart the computer from the desktop environment. I can switch to a character-mode console, stop gdm, and then run a reboot or halt command. However, the computer then often appears to hang before it completely shuts down the operating system; <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Delete> still works at that point, though.
