Hey Janne!

  No problem! :)

   I assume by messenger you mean the voip UI. The answer to your
question is, yes. All you have to deal with is this gconf key which is
a list of dbus-services that are to be launched when camera pops-out:
/system/osso/af/on-camera-out . Keep in mind thought that voip-ui also
adds/remove itself to/from this gconf key when user checks/unchecks
the "Start when camera opened" chechbox in the settings dialog.
