I have seen webcams do this, although not specifically with Ekiga. This happened
on older computers with newer software. You have quite recent software. Maybe
you are running on some older hardware like a Pentium II?

I have solved similar problems by adding some swap. Not much is needed either,
maybe a few hundred MB.
