Possible reason: different e-mail addresses for subscription and
sending mail to sane-devel?

I answered to this privately but maybe it's of interest for other
users: I think that this is not related to software, it looks like
there is a problem with the scan slider or the sensor. At least I have
never heard about such a problem from other users.

The configuration file for the Mustek backend is mustek.conf (usually
at /usr/local/etc/sane.d/). Usually it's not necessary to touch it for
basic scanning. However, there are some options for tuning slow scans.
The documentation is in man sane-mustek, some more general infos are
in man sane.

There is no other list as pointed out on the website. Asking questions
here is ok.
