Unfortunately, Slackware 12.2 does not come with gnome/gconf.  There
are some 3rd-party gnome packages, but they all seem to come with
4th-party stories telling of how some critical libraries get
over-written, causing "mysterious" problems with other programs.
Consequently, I am loathe to do so.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.  Certainly, I expect the error
messages above to be related to imperfect implementation of
 	--disable-gnome --disable-gconf
but I'm having a harder time imagining that the reason for the bizarre
video problem is a gnomish thing.  However, I say that with never
having taken a peek at any of the ekiga/ptlib/opal code.
