The obvious thing is: It's a bug in the mustek backend and it's me who
is to blame. I will fix it in CVS.

Look at function sane_control_option in backend/mustek.c. There is a
DBG statement:

 DBG(5, "sane_control_option (%s option %s)\n",
      action == SANE_ACTION_GET_VALUE ? "get" : 
      (action == SANE_ACTION_SET_VALUE ? "set" : "unknown action with"),
Just remove these lines completely, this should fix the bug.

However, if you also tried without debugging and a similar error
occurs something different may be wrong.

Thanks for finding this one!
