BUG: Captured images become corrupted on FreeBSD (6.2-RC1)

Motion 3.2.7 corrupts captured images on FreeBSD. Only about 20% of the actual PAL image area at the top of the image is used. The rest of the image area is left green. In the area used there seems to be only a fraction of the camera scan lines. It looks like motion is skipping some lines entirely and then again capturing one line, skipping a few lines again and again scanning a single line. The result looks like the image had been compressed in vertical, but stretching with e.g. xv reveals that the vertical direction has become very coarsely pixelized. Some scan rows have been simply lost.
A sample of these corrupted images is available attached.

Follow up

What capture card are you using ?

Could you attach your motion.conf ?

I can reproduce your error , i've tested with a PTCV Miro pro and all work fine at 320x240, when motion start you can see something like :
bktr0 : MT2032: Companucode?3cbf Part=84 Revision=84
bktr0 : MT2032: bit found or unknown type
bktr0 : Detected a MSP3410G-B11 at  0x00

bktr0 : MT2032: Companucode?3cbf Part=84 Revision=84
bktr0 : MT2032: bit found or unknown type
bktr0 : Detected a MSP3410G-B11 at  0x00

I'm using these parameters in motion.conf ( capturing from composite1 ):
videodevice /dev/bktr0
input 0

But when i set 640x480 the problem raise ... so i'll check what can be the problem.
