Package: cheese
Version: 3.0.1-2
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

When upgrading to cheese 3.0.1, cheese quit with the message:

(cheese:11462): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: XServer appears to lack the required GLX support
(cheese:11462): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to check features. Have you initialized Clutter?
(cheese:11462): Clutter-WARNING **: Unable to create a new stage: the glx backend does not support multiple stages.
(cheese:11462): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_set_data: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(cheese:11462): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_data: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

Reinstalling 2.30 then cheese works again.
