Thanks. diff'ing the descriptors shows something interesting (from good to
good2):

@@ -264,7 +264,7 @@
dwMaxVideoFrameBufferSize 614400
dwDefaultFrameInterval 333333
bFrameIntervalType 11
- dwFrameInterval( 0) 3758429717
+ dwFrameInterval( 0) 333333
dwFrameInterval( 1) 363636
dwFrameInterval( 2) 400000
dwFrameInterval( 3) 444444
3758429717 is 0xe0051615 in hex, and 333333 is 0x00051615.
I wonder what other parts of the descriptors could get corrupted that way.

All of those are warm reboots, and you don't boot any alternative OS in-
between, right ?

Does Linux reload the iSight firmware at every boot ? If it does, could you
try to reload the firmware manually when you get a "bad" GUID to see if it
helps ? You will probably need to unload the uvcvideo driver before reloading
the firmware.
