OV518+ camera not working under Mandrake 9.2

I'm having difficulties in getting my OV518+/OV6130 camera to work under Mandrake 9.2.

I have another camera, OV511+/OV6120 that works fine with both the 2.25 (comes with 9.2) and 2.27 drivers (latest stable).

Here is what I do:
modprobe ovcamchip
modprobe ov511

This works just fine but then when I physically plug the camera into my system, it takes about 8 seconds until my entire system freezes and requires a hard reset.

With debug set at 5 for ovcamchip and ov511, here is the last 20 or so entries from dmesg:

ov6x30.c: [ov6x30_set_control:243] id=9, arg=0, rc=0
ov511_core.c: [ov518_i2c_adap_write_byte:1212] (0xC0) 0x12

ov511_core.c: Device at usb-00:07.2-1 registered to minor 0
ov511_core.c: [ov51x_probe:5580] probing for device...
ov511_core.c: [ov51x_probe:5580] probing for device...
ov511_core.c: [ov51x_probe:5580] probing for device...

What can I do? It is also interesting to note that the driver reports that the imager is OV6630, huh.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
