Yes, that's exactly the symptom that I was seeing.
My conclusion was that $cdev just doesn't work in devd.conf
in 8-stable. I thought it might have been a new feature in
9-current (but that was just a guess).

I'm not sure if that's the appropriate place. I opted for
creating a group "video" (make s sens, IMHO), added myself
to that group, and appended this line to /etc/devfs.rules:
add path 'video*' mode 0660 group video
The advantage of that approach is that it's independent of
the way how /dev/video* gets created (whether by pwc.ko or
cuse4bsd.ko + webcamd or whatever). It works in any case.
