[sane-devel] Umax Astra 1200S freezing up

I would like to think it is something that simple - but I have received 
the same results with three different SCSI cards and three different cables.
I also get the same results with the terminator on or off, and with all 
variations of the SCSI bios settings.  Also, all three cards and cables 
worked fine in Windows.
I don't really think that it has to do with the UMAX backend though, as 
I get the exact same symptoms running VistaScan under CrossOver Office, so I
think it may have more to do with Linux (or the distro I am using) than 
with Sane.
