This is the same thing that happens with the Mustek 1200 CU and
sometimes even with the 1200 UB. Probably some varaiable isn't
initialized correctly for the second scan.

I'm working on this backend but currently I'm busy with converting it
into something that can be included into SANE. Removing all these
debug printfs, C++ pseudocode, global variables, non-static functions
etc. After that I'm trying to fix this (and other bugs). Don't hold
your breath, this can take quite some time.

I will update the web site concerning your observation.
