[sane-devel] remote scanimage: unable to determine option count

I have the latest Sane backend locally complied install on a SPARCserver
1000 (Solaris 8) with a Mustek ScanExpress 6000SP flatbed SCSI scanner.
This works absolutely fine with local scanimage commands and has done for
a long time.

I just cannot get remote saned working. As a client I have a SPARCstation
10 (Solaris 2.6). Running scanimage -L on the client does return the
remote scanner ok. But actually trying to scan from the client gives
"scanimage: unable to determine option count" on the client and on the
server gives debug info:

[mustek] sane_open: devicename=/dev/scg0f
[mustek] sane_open: finished (handle=2f0a8)
[mustek] sane_control_option (get option Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

Has anyone got any ideas, I hope (in a way) I've missed something really

Many thanks,

Jon Symonds
