It appears that xsane is very crash prone. Today I resumed scanning all
my slides, and discover that Xsane 0.92 and now 0.93 are crashing quite

The stack trace is as follow:

I use xsane from Debian PowerPC, and I never had this problem with 0.90
on my old PowerPC machine (now, I'm using it remotely using saned
because I don't have SCSI on the laptop).

Somewhat related I have found a strange behaviour : sometime when
increasing gamma, I just get the colors completely screwed up. Of
course, I can't restore them after that :-/

Sometime I get other crashes.

Any idea ?

Where shall I file all those bugs ? Sane BTS on alioth ?
