I have been playing about with an ov511+ based USB webcam and I have 
found that the userland capture program which uses ugen requires many 
attempts to capture one frame... Result is - it can take ages for one 
320x240 image and near impossible for 640x480.

I have kludged a "better" one but results are still poor... I am also 
messing about with a kernel driver (I just have to cope with 
driver-induced panics ;))

I haven't looked at it for a couple of weeks - been busy.
