i tried it with the 0.23 version of qcam, and i got a black pic
consistently.  tried same settings with xqcam and got a reasonble
picture, but the brightness level floated, giving me some bright pics,
some dark pics.  i varied the light level in the room, and all it did
was make the picture darker as the lights got darker.

go figure...
