Bug#621783: cheese hangs on startup, then refuses to close via window manager controls

I launched cheese via Applications > Sound & Video > Cheese Webcam Booth
A blank window appeared with the title bar of "Cheese", but nothing happened in it.
When i clicked the window-manager-provided "x" in the corner of the
title bar, i get a dialog box that says:
Cheese is not responding.
You may choose to wait a short while for it to continue or force the application to quit entirely.
[Force Quit] [Wait]
Note that this machine has no video camera attached. Choosing "wait"
If i Force Quit, and then re-launch cheese, i get the expected "no"
symbol, with the warning label that says "No device found".
So it appears to be something about the first attempt to open Cheese on
a system with no video camera.
