Hi Steve,

You write:=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I am the proud owner of a new Connectix QuickCam. I just
installed it and the software for it as per the instructions. I tried
out the apps which came with the camera, and the camera appears to be
working fine.

Then I tried quitting all those apps and starting up Cu-SeeMe 0.83b3.
The program starts up, appears to put up a window showing me and then
crashes the system:

Sorry, a system error occured. "CU-SeeMe 0.83b3 (PPC)" error type 11

This happens repeatedly. Any ideas?

I've encountered the problem that you describe too on my 7100AV (sys
7.5.1) with a video camera. I don't believe it is related to the QuickCam.
Historically, CU-SeeMe 0.83b3 was released to make sound work on PCI bus
macs. At the time I was so grateful for the release (I was trying to do
netcast of public Univ. of Texas of Dallas events with a 7500) that I
didn't complain about the new version crashing my 7100. I just kept
running CU-SeeMe 0.83b2. Thanks for reminding me of the problem. You're
using a 6100, right?

Tim, Brian -- can you reproduce this behavior? or fix it?
