[sane-devel] HP-Backend asks for a Password (Probably a Bug)

I set up saned with IP-based authentification without passwords and almost 
everything works fine. But when doing
scanimage --help
After (or while) displaying help-message the backend asks for an username and 
password. It looks like this:

    --source Normal|XPA [Normal]
        Selects the scan source (such as a document-feeder).
WARNING: backend requested plain-text password
Authentification required for resource net:dominica:. Enter username:     
--lamp-off [
Enter password: 
kaymes@fiji:~ > 

When actually scanning no password is requested. 

I also have another mashine with an Epson-Scanner and the exact same setup. 
Here everything including the help-Message works fine.

The Scanner is a HP C2500A, the OS is Debian woody and I'm using Sane in the 
released version 1.0.8.
