Me too. As near as I can tell, both xfqcam and nv using libqcam 0.3
are nondeterministic about whether if finds a camera. This is ok with
xfqcam because I just tell it where the camera is (although even then,
I have trouble unless I run as root - not setuid. Weird, huh?). For nv
it's a problem, but if I first run xfqcam (specifying the port by
hand) and then run nv, it always works.

1.3.45 here.

(the kernel driver changed - I rebuilt pppd from sources to make it go
with 1.3.45.)
