Unfortunately not. I have reported USB problems for the 2.6 kernel, and
nobody cares. What you can do if you think that I have influence is mail
the maintainers and put me in CC and I will confirm the problem.

Do you imagine that people would run an application that kills other
applications using the soundcard on incoming calls? 

However, I agree with you for the current problem, I just didn't find an
acceptable solution yet.

I'm personnally using xmms, xine without artsd or esd, and when I have
to answer an incoming call, I stop the sound playing.

There is also another possibility : using the dmix interface of ALSA in
all programs, but I didn't try again.

I think you misunterstood me. You are seeing your video in the main
window because you asked to do so. But seeing the video in the main
window is not related to the fact that you are transmitting video or not
during calls. It is only there to see if you look good before calling
somebody. If you disable the video preview by clicking on the webcam
icon, and that you accept an incoming call, video transmission will be
automatically started provided that :
- the remote user accepts video reception
- you enabled video transmission in the preferences

If you have video preview (what you are describing) enabled, but video
transmission disabled, there will be no video transmission.
Similarly, if you have video preview disabled, but video transmission is
enabled, there will be a video transmission. You don't need to play with
the preview.

Do you understand what I mean?

Thank you,
