Package: cheese
Version: 2.24.3-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Loading cheese fails with the (console) message:
ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.
Error re-scanning registry , child terminated by signal

It is possible to temporarily work around this issue by either removing
the plugin or by using --gst-disable-registry-update, but neither is an
option for common users.
