Indeed trac account creation is still disabled, probably not for a long
I never had the behaviour you have: freeze when accepting a receiving
call nor I heard about his behaviour before you. So hard to tell you
something. Maybe you could first try to use audio/video test as input
device in configuration window.
Indeed a undrawn part of the window is shown until we receive the video
of the contact. That's the current behaviour ... But that should not
prevent the chat window to be closed. That looks like the same freeze
behaviour previously explained.
I also use debian and video works ok for me.
