>From the last line I gather that you did compile Sane 1.0.12 yourself and
did not install an RPM package.

Can you (in addition to the information that Henning already requested),
also send the contents of your epson.conf file. Also, are you using
the scanner kernel module (scanner.o) or libusb?

When you upgraded, did you remove the old Sane version? Which version
were you running before? Was this also compiled by yourself, or did you
replace Red Hat's packaged version?

I've never heard about a crash with 1.0.12 before, so please provide
as much information as you can.
