strings /usr/lib/sane/libsane.so.1 | grep 'sane_.*_init'

So, yes, my `scanimage' was linked to v4l too.  (I had suspected
something along these lines because it kept claiming a char-major-81
module in the system logs, which are v4l devices.)  Again, for the
record, this is RedHat 8.0's sane-backends-1.0.8-5.2 and
sane-frontends-1.0.8-4 package.  (Upgrading to Hugo's 1.0.13 as found on
the sane website solves the problem.)
