[sane-devel] xsane and large previews

Hi, I'm trying to use xsane 0.86 with a Nikon LS-8000ED, which is a
medium-format scanner with a minimum practical preview resolution of
1000dpi. This generates huge previews whatever I do. Now the problem
seems to be that I use xsane over an ssh tunnel, and it is exceedingly
slow this way (1 line per second!). Is it possible that xsane wastes
bandwidth when drawing the preview? I assume it doesn't down-sample
prior to displaying, I think that would be a good idea.

Haven't yet tried xscanimage.
