Ah, well, I figured out why the camera wasn't shutting off. I had apparently installed 13.06 a while ago. Even though I was running 13.12, it was picking up some components. I uninstalled, and now it shuts off properly.
I'd still like to pick my camera.
It's was a known bug that the camera gets turned on at start up, as a way to check if there is one present, and then under some (all?) circumstances it doesn't get turned off. But it was supposed to have been fixed I thought. Hopefully Daid, the developer of Cura, will respond here after the holidays.
Don't know much about the external cam support - the webcam feature is a Windows only thing at this point, and I use a Mac.
