actually, no.  i discovered that my scanner had a hardware fault.
apparently i get on with scanners as well as i do with cd burners and

obviously you guys need to do a better job detecting hardware errors
that the hardware is not reporting.  (note, i'm not serious here)

thanks for the quick response, sorry for the slow follow-up.

i had the scanner replaced and all is well.  on a different note, any
idea why i get this error in /var/log/messages several dozen times at
the beginning of each scan?

rpms.  btw i can't upgrade the rest of my system as i try to keep it up
to date with work systems.
