might have accidentally been placed in the DMA buffer, but there aren't any.
I tried immediately checking the value using dc1394_feature_get_value,
and it assures me that the value has been set. Maybe the feature value
is cached by libdc1394 once it is set?
Is there some way of polling the camera to make sure that the value is
