The latest rawhide bits as of Saturday (sorry can't check them directly 
right now).  I've tried several reboots and changes of init levels since 
that seemed to work for Gianluca, but no dice.

If I wanted to add some additional echo statements to 
the /usr/libexec/gphoto-set-procperm where would their output show up?  
I wanted to check and see if the environment variables were getting set 
correctly, since everything else looks ok (guess I can just redirect to 
a file to do some debugging, I'll try that when I get home).

Thanks,
Jesse
