I already investigated this bug and concluded that the problem is not the
plugin but Hugin's packages (some of them).

In fact, hugin is using ZThread, and bundles it. However, for some reason that
I am not aware of, some packages are built with debug support of the ZThreads,
which introduces some extra output, and in particular the line "ThreadQueue
created", which then mess up the whole parsing. In the configure script of the
ZThreads (the official package), one can enable the debug with
"--enable-debug", but it is disabled by default.

I am not completely against patching, but IMHO that doesn't make sense for two
reasons: a package is something that should be stable, and therefore without
extra debug output, and the panorama plugin is not meant to test Hugin's tools,
such that support for Hugin's debug output doesn't make any sense.

The patch I provided is more efficient than yours (it tests the second line
rather than the first, instead of testing both), so anyone who wants to build
the plugin from the source can just grab it and patch. On the other hand,
packagers should take care of Hugin's packaging and fix this debug, IMHO.
