Just enter it as a new bug. Revolution originates from a time without
FireWire and just doesn't check for devices attached to a built-in
FireWire port. This should be easy to fix (but I might be wrong).
In the mean time, you can refrain from the default input and show a
little wizard, which helps the user to choose the correct input.
