Ooops. That shouldn't happen. That lloks like a communication problem
betwwen the net backend and saned. Or something else disturbs the flow
of communication between saned and net. Such an error will end saned
so the backend may not be able to "close" the parport.

You have done a normal scan and have not cancelled it?

Can you please try the following: disable saned in inetd.conf, restart
inetd to apply that change, and start saned manually with debugging

saned -d128

Please show us the output when you do a scan with scanimage.
