I never did get either XSane or imagescan to work properly with this thing.  
XSane still crashes on a color preview, and imagescan still scans the wrong 

Thankfully I tried using Kooka in KDE.  This app works perfectly.  A proper 
color preview, and scans exactly the area requested.

There is software problem going on here with the Sane front ends on this 
scanner.  I wish XSane were usable, as it allows for a lot more tweaks and 
integrates nicely with Gimp.

Anyhow, even though I've managed to conclude that this scanner is usable for 
me, I thought I'd still let this list know that there still exist a number of 
glitches in Sane which are pretty significant.  Just hoping that someone gets 
a chance to look this over.
