Not good.

No, but every backend that has "scsi something" in the config file
should work. I have no idea why it doesn't work with mustek. On Linux,
this works.

Can you show the sane-find-scanner output of the Mustek scanner? Maybe
it's a problem with the empty product name in the OS/2 code of
sanei_scsi_find_devices.c. We had a similar problem on Linux some time
