I've had problems before with my usb midi keyboard which uses snd-usb-audio. 
often I've had to set options to load it as card 1, otherwise it gets loaded 
as card0, and the soundcard is loaded as card1.

I don't know about your problem specifically, but would you post the output 
cat /proc/asound/cards

First do this booting up with the webcam unplugged, then shutdown, plugin the 
webcam, reboot, and run cat /proc/asound/cards again.

It will be interesting to see if, when the webcam is plugged in, it is being 
detected as card0. ( that is, the usb mike part of it), and your sound card 
is being set as card1.

Can you also post the output of /sbin/lsusb with the webcam plugged in, and 
also the output from /sbin/lsmod.
