Just before I was about to check the webcam with Ubuntu  I tried it on another 
computer... and it worked.  

To make sure: I copied across the debug build of webcam and it worked with 
that as well.  It certainly is not the software on the webcamd side.  cuse4bsd 
is the same on both computers.  Both systems are running different custom 
kernels but contain the same usb devices (the same as GENERIC).  

On the computer that works `pwcview -s vga` does not work.  I expect that to 
be a limitation of the device.  

On the other computer, I tried every USB port and none of them work.  The USB 
controllers are:

oh...@pci0:0:11:0:      class=0x0c0310 card=0x50041458 chip=0x026d10de 
rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    device     = 'MCP51 USB Controller'
    class      = serial bus
    subclass   = USB
eh...@pci0:0:11:1:      class=0x0c0320 card=0x50041458 chip=0x026e10de 
rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    device     = 'MCP51 USB Controller'
    class      = serial bus
    subclass   = USB

The USB ports do work for umass, u3g and umodem devices.  Will the kernel 
version have an impact, should I upgrade to head?

The webcam works with Ubuntu on both computers.
