OK, I did some more testing and it looks like it's a Xsane problem:
With version 0.77 it works without any problems, when I cancel the
preview I get an error pop-up with the message "Error during read:
Operation was cancelled". I tried this about 10 times and got this
message every time. After I clicked on OK I was able to scan again.
With 0.78 I did my first cancel and got the same problem as you.
After that I had to power down my scanner.
Oliver, did you change anything in the canel-handling?
