Ok, I missed that, I do have to use --source="Automatic Document Feeder"
option, at least with the UMAX backend, I was assuming that utility for
ADF would enable that itself ;)

Ick, there *was* a physical problem, I apologize for sending the original

back into the output bin was no folder correctly!  It seems to work quite
well now.

Thanks for the help and the software..
