Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

I tried to run cheese

   * What was the outcome of this action?

cheese hung, in a cpu bound loop

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

My ugly mug

This looks very much like upstream bug 673991

gdb backtrace shows cheese somewhere inside gst_caps_intersect_full.
