Yes, I have seen that. I can't confirm that I have had to reboot
every time, but on the whole, you are not alone with that problem.

I have also had video windows fail to 'handshake' (or whatever the
equivalent is with CUSeeMe) where the message 'such and such stream'
(mpeg, for example) is continuously displayed without an image ever
appearing. Someone else has reported seeing the same effect with my
image. I don't recall if they had v1.0 or if it was just me with v1.0.
