I've been working on the mustek backend but until now I get different
types of errors for either fork or threading. Usually some segfaults
when cancelling. Too many signals, signal handlers, signal blocking,
pipes etc I guess. Should be fixed until the weekend I hope.

Probably a problem from the latest saned update that added CIDR
support. If it breaks on OS/2 it may also break on other platforms
without IPv6. That code is prettey complicated, so I hope Julien
Blache fixes it :-)
