Nikon Coolscan II alias LS20 works fine with sane 1.0.5 and Tame
But I have some problems with this scanner and sane 1.0.12. Prescan aborts after some
bytes. Scan does not work too. I think there is a problem with the SCSI commands sent
by the backend.
I use ASPI 1.1beta9 and tried with two different SCSI adapters, NCR810 and Adaptec
2940. 1.0.5 works fine with both adapters but 1.0.12 and 1.0.11 make troubles.
The reason I would like to switch from 1.0.5 to a newer sane version is because of the
limit in the length of the parameters that can be passed to scanimage. With Tame
1.0beta I sometimes exceed 540 characters, which causes scanimage to fail.
So my questions to the experts:
Where should I trace to find the reason for coolscan not working with sane 1.0.12?
How can I overcome the length limit of the parameters. Is it a limit of scanimage or
Do sane 1.0.12 or the coming version 1.0.13 have the same limit?

A question from my side:
Is it correct that coolscan and not coolscan2 has to be used with the LS20?
