Hi Doug

One of the things that bit me just today is one of our nodes (the last one running 2.1 still) had exactly this behaviour. The logs showed the videoproducer service exec()ing vic as you'd expect, yet nothing happened, no vic started

Turned out to be that I had defined the camera title (in 'manage my node'/'configure producer service') as something like "Camera1 - left" to try out some new cabling. When vic was started the number of quotes/shell escapes around that title didn't quite work out right, and vic started trying to send/listen to stdout/stdin, or thought 'left' was another option, and just bugged out. Removing the ' - ' fixed it. :-)

I don't know if this bug is still in 2.3, but will check that soon.

YMMV :-)
