I found the reason: To get access to the <Fn><keys> i had installed the
samsung-tools and eventhough i wasn't using it anymore, the preferences
of samsung-tools-preferences where still sitting there - and blocking
the webcam. I re-installed and -activated them, turned the webcam on and
all is fine now.

Thanks a lot for your effort and - please excuse that i was so studid! :-(
