#42: FireVision plugin unload deadlock
 Reporter:  tim         |       Owner:  tim

 The fawkes process is deadlocked very often when unloading a plugin. The
 problem is that in the acquisition thread the image is captured and
 possibly converted, and then the cyclic vision threads for this camera are
 called. In the capture/convert time the threads can be cancelled because
 the loop is not running, and then the aquisition thread will wait forever
 on the barrier of cyclic threads. Since currently the base vision runs in-
 loop the whole fawkes loop deadlocks.

 I tracked down the problem on GO2008 with valuable input from Daniel and
 Volker. I have yet to come up with a good solution though.
