I will do that.  Of course I don't know how to file a bug report.  I believe
I have a user ID, but will have to play for a bit, methinks.

All my previous issues were due to user ignorance, or user error, with me
being the user  :-)

Just to clarify, your list of the issue events is perfect.  But, it's only
the image *inside* the cheese frame that freezes, not the XO machine, the
application or the projector, just the camera image.  Also, its the same
symptoms inb Sugar, not just Gnome.  One can just close cheese, open
guvcview and carry on in the same session.  But guvcview requires a bit of
work on F11 to install, much more work for a non-technical person than just
a 'yum install cheese' requires.

Off to bug report land!
