when trying to use AV/C controls in Kino, application
freezes after switching from capture or trying to close
app. Sometimes kernel totally locks up. if trying to
capture w/o av/c (controlling from camera), all goes
ok. Tried both dv1394 and raw1394 drivers. It does not
matter, if av/c was switched on or off in kino when
freeze occurs.

when using dv1394 driver, get a lot of:

...
dv1394: dropped a frame during reception
dv1394: dropped a frame during reception
dv1394: dropped a frame during reception
...

OS: Fedora Core 2

versions too)
