I haven't tried with XSane yet; the debug log with scanimage shows
that the backend first tests the state of the scanner, then waits a
few seconds for the lamp to warm up as a result. It then tests the
state of the scanner again, and then waits more than 30 seconds for
the lamp to warm up. Maybe that's what you're seeing ?

I need to take a closer look at that tomorrow, I'd like to be able to
scan several times in a row without power cycling the scanner :) I
guess it may have to do with the scanner id string changing once the
firmware is loaded, need to check that. (just wondering why is this
string used to indentify the scanner, as it's a USB scanner... I know
it's the way SCSI scanners are identified)

Thanks for sending the first mostly-complete patch :)
