This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.

In the last mailing (20 Nov 2004) of these reminders, a bug in my
script suppressed the sending of second and subsequent patches
associated with a maintainer.  This resend is going only to maintainers
with multiple patches; the first one may be one you have already processed.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/problems.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any questions.
Note: These patches do not change the mod date of any manual page.  You
may wish to do that by hand.

Problems with sane-coolscan2.5:

1. Dot or single-quote at start of line turns it into a garbage command.
This is a serious error; some lines of your page get silently lost
when it is formatted.
