Lockup while using Cheese on 1.3.91
Last modified: 2014-11-08 14:14:49 UTC
I'm using Cheese on GStreamer 1.3.91 + these patches  . Cheese seems to run much better compared to previous 1.3.x releases, but I experience a very reproducible lock when taking two pictures in a row. It seems that two threads are being locked on the same mutex, probably a race condition.
See trace below.

Can you still reproduce with latest git master for -bad? A fix for a race at camerabin image capture has been fixed earlier today.
That fixed it! Works like a charm in 1.4.0.
