Is this what you ment? Those lines are not present when I checked online 1 to 1 (left to right) with direct web connection to the camera, but on motion detection picture they were. I checked over several appearances. In my case they appear from 1 to 3 or 4 at the time, their appearance is very sporadical, sometimes there is 5 or more minutes without them but sometimes they appear 5 seconds appart.

It could be some glitch in the motion detection algorithm or rather in the Reference image algorithm - I use this great feature. It appear in both cases: with and without Auto level. But I am not sure if they also appear in the Frame-to-frame mode.

For me they present no problem. :D

I have the same problem, randomly triggering motion detection; it happens maybe 30 times a day; running a low-cost asus Eeee PC 1005 PE, Windows 7 starter ed. with all updates applied, and drivers up-to-date, yawcam 0.6, I wonder if it has to do with the PC's specs not high enough ?
Here is a sample:

I was beating my head against the wall trying to decide if it was my camera, my USB port, or drivers that were broken. This is exactly what I have been getting!

1. These are single-frame glitches that appear to be randomly spaced anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes apart.

2. They are visible in motion detection, motion detection settings view, AND in stream broadcast, but NOT in the preview window.

3. These only occur when motion detection is ACTIVE, or when the motion detection settings preview is open.
