Tangentially, nowknowing that Cheese talks through different drivers might
just help me with another issue.  Cheese image freezes 100% of the time on
the XO 1.0 and XO 1.5, on either Sugar or Gnome when the machine is also
displaying through an external USB2VGA monitor.  Doesnt matter whether there
is an external camera, or the built-in - image is frozen.  Guvcview, on the
other hand, works just peachy, built-in or external with the Veho external
monitor or not.. Hmmmm.
