Henning you were right! I had the Kowa software installed for test
and the sane backend was replaced.

	Yes it does, if you install clean sane. ;-)

	Xsane seems to be a little bit more "intelligent", it offers an option
to change to selection menue, when the Kowa backend is installed. Xsane
works fine with the Kowa backend.

	Right this was my problem! I did some experiments with the Epson
Kowa software and therefore the sane backend was replaced. 

Thanks for help!
