I recently purchased a usb webcam and found that polling /proc/apm
causes the webcam in xawtv to skip.  I can so this either by doing 'cat
/proc/apm' or using the gnome battstat-applet.  Disabling the
battstat-applet and not touching /proc/apm lets xawtv work fine.

Polling /proc/apm also causes clock drift.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop (1.6Ghz Pentium 4).  Using kernel
2.4.18 with rmap12h and preempt-kernel patch.
