[sane-devel] Redhat 9 and XSane .89

I have an Epson 1650 scanner which worked perfectly with my Redhat 8
installation. Never a second of grief.
Now, after switching to RH 9 and the version of Sane which comes with it I
find a very ill-mannered Sane implementation.
First, XSane goes out and looks for a scanner automatically on log-in. My
scanner is on a USB switch so it can be shared with two other computers so
most of the time it is not available on start-up. The "Looking" dialog just
hangs around forever.
Second, I cannot use XSane or anything (GIMP) that uses it. The application
just locks up after running the scanning mechanism. I have to KILL the
I am using the current iscan rpm from EpsonKowa.
Is there something I should know here?
