I've installed the UV4L video for linux framework for the PI, and it installs fine but when running the following dd command to capture an image

dd if=/dev/video1 of=snapshot.jpeg bs=11M count=1

I'm getting this error:

dd: opening `/dev/video1': Interrupted system call

I followed the instruction on it's website http://www.linux-projects.org/modules/sections/index.php?op=viewarticle&artid=14

Anyone seen this problem before?
