Thanks, Vincent. I totally misunderstood the problem.

I looked into your log and added debug comments to rospack and it seems

So it should. Not sure why that was working in Fuerte.

I have a guess as to why it suddenly started failing in Groovy. It seems
you recently released a new image_common, version 1.10.3, which
includes camera_info_manager changes to eliminate a rostest error message
and get those unit tests working again under catkin. In image_common
1.10.0, camera_info_manager did have a rostest run_depend (which was
causing an error message).

If that is correct, why did the pre-release tests not detect that
camera1394 had broken as a side-effect?

Don't the pre-release tests still build and test all dependent packages,
like they used to?
