Hi !

1- compilation problem :
there is a problem with it.po and ja.po

file=./`echo it | sed 's,.*/,,'`.gmo \
  && rm -f $file && PATH=../src:$PATH /usr/bin/msgfmt -o $file it.po
  it.po: warning: Charset "CHARSET" is not a portable encoding name.
                  Message conversion to user's charset might not work.
  file=./`echo ja | sed 's,.*/,,'`.gmo \
    && rm -f $file && PATH=../src:$PATH /usr/bin/msgfmt -o $file ja.po
   ja.po:532: invalid multibyte sequence
   ja.po:533: end-of-line within string

I've changed CHARSET to ISO-8859-1 in it.po and removed ja.po from

2-I've a problem with xsane when I try to scan with high resolution
The same problem exists with 0.79

I've an epson 1640-SU Photo connected on the USB port.
It works fine with scanimage and any resolution.

With xsane, if I select a resolution of 1600, I get a popup window with
"Failed to start scanner. Out of memory"

Then, if I change the resolution to 300, I get a window with :
"Failed to start scanner. Invalid argument"

And it is impossible to have the scanner working before restarting

I've never seen the problem up to the resolution of 1200, it appears at
and higher.

I've not the problem in 'gray' mode.
In color mode I've the problem with both the 8 and 14 bits depth.

System is :
K6-2 500 with 256Mb SDRAM. Linux 2.2.20-pre10. Xfree 4.1.0.
