I also opened a bug, after posting. it is 179315.
I posted in bugzilla for the udev package but it was "routed" by
bugzilla to hal.
The camera is seen from root.
I thought that within the interaction between udev and hal to
associate device names,
symlinks and permissions when plugging devices, the permission part
was responsibility of udev,
for example with settings inside  /etc/udev/permissions.d directory .....
You instead are saying that is a matter of gphoto2...??
I think that I'm missing something here...
Thanks for your clarifications
