[sane-devel] WinXP problem

New user, first posting, probably just brainfade, but here's my problem:

I use xsane on linux (libranet, a debian derivative) with an Epson 1660 
scanner, and just installed xsane on WinXP on my home network. I have 
sane serving from libranet, and it works well from my other linux 
(debian 3.0) box. However, on WinXP I get errors about not being able to 
create temp files; many errors on startup, get preview and shutdown. 
This is true with unprivileged users on XP, but with a privileged user 
all is working.
Does anyone have a fix? or is this just an out-of-luck on XP condition?
(I don't wish to make my teenagers privileged if I can help it! ;-) )
