Hi everyone,

I'm forwarding this because the original is being held up in the moderation 
process because its size exceeds 40KB. I've removed the debug.txt file 
because I don't think it finished due to a segmentation fault. I'm wondering 
if this might be the cause of the problem? If you can tell me specifically 
what abnormalities to look for in the debug.txt I can send the appropriate 
section to you. Thanks again,

Sorry, I thought I was sending a copy to the list.

Thanks, I was trying to start xsane as root when X was started as user. I
didn't quite get it before.

Now here is the _real_ debug.txt which may not be complete since there was a
segmentation fault reported at the terminal (no other terminal output):
