Webcam doesn't work with Motion active

Question

All features of Motion work (snapshots and Live Webcam), but the actual webcam doesn't work it self if using with Cheese or any other software while Motion is enabled. If it is disabled, then the webcam works. Is there anyway to have both working at the same time, or do I have to disable Motion just to use the Webcam.

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.

Environment

Motion version: 3.2.12
ffmpeg version:  
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Ubuntu 11.10
