Hi Eugen/All,

Debug output is linked below. A change to the test case, as I am running on the
work system - but I can recreate the problem identically. Another discovery - I
can actually force the video to freeze with apparent consistency.

The Windows system in this case is Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, Ekiga 3.2.7. It
has a public IP address, on a LAN making a SIP call using to another
system within the same firewall but also with a public IP address - this system
is running OpenIndiana oi_147 with Ekiga 3.2.7.

Windows is running on a Dell Latitude with a built-in webcam. Theora is the only
selected codec.

I have found that a video call can be initiated fine. However, on the Windows
machine, if one say waves a hand or makes any substantial movement in front
of/very close to the camera, the user at the other end will see the remote video
freeze. I can make the system do this at will, simply by gesticulating in front
of the camera, no joke. Calls are perfectly stable - as long as one stays very

Debug output from the Windows machine here:

The video is observed to freeze roughly 20 seconds into the call (when I decided
to wave my hand around).

Hi Dave,

The problem appears at the same place in the code as  I put a comment there, please go there from now on for further information and tracking.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this - I am downloading the 3.3.1 build referenced in the bug report on a Windows machine, will perform testing and post the results.
