Motion - Support Question 2014x 03x 11x 185332

possible race with 2 stk1160 USB devices

Question

Hi, I have 2 stk1160 based USB capture cards, and I think I'm encountering some sort of race condition somewhere between them and Motion. If I unload and re-load the module enough times, I can get either camera to work, but only one camera ever works at a time, the other shows "unable to open device" in the video stream, and logs as below:
