Anyone else faced up with a problem like this one?

I'm using a BBB rev C with Debian, image 3.8.13-bone70, with a Microsoft® LifeCam HD-3000 directly connected to BBB USB port and streaming  to my LAN via ethernet cable.

this is the result of v4l2-ctl

v4l2-ctl --all

Driver Info (not using libv4l2):

Driver name   : uvcvideo

Card type     : Microsoft® LifeCam HD-3000

Launching mjpg_streamer with this command:
/usr/local/bin/mjpg_streamer -i "/usr/local/lib/input_uvc.so -n -f 5 -r 1280x720" -o "/usr/local/lib/output_http.so -w /usr/local/www"

it starts fine with a regular output:

MJPG Streamer Version: svn rev: 

 i: Using V4L2 device.: /dev/video0

 i: Desired Resolution: 1280 x 720

 i: Frames Per Second.: 5

 i: Format............: MJPEG

 o: www-folder-path...: /usr/local/www/

 o: HTTP TCP port.....: 8080

but very frequently it stops with this error:

*** glibc detected *** /usr/local/bin/mjpg_streamer: double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x00015690 ***


any idea?

thank you in advance.

A little update.

Connecting to the video stream with Chrome (OS X 10.10.2), it's stable since more than 24 hours. Connecting via Safari, mjpg_streamer  crashes randomly after some minutes or some hours. 

I'm using the mjpg_streamer version already installed in image 3.8.13-bone70.

Could I try compiling it with different switches and upgrading all the dependencies?
