I'm cc'ing to the mailing list just in case anyone has the same problem.

This is an ugly hack but it may work in this case.

Explanation: There are some different scanners which all use the same
USB ids and they aren't distinguishable from each other by software.
They also use different firmware files.

That's why there are "override" directives in gt68xx.conf.

By default it's assumed that you have a Mustek BearPaw 1200 CU and
that one uses the firmware "PS1fw.usb". That's why the backend uses
that name. If you had enabled the override
"mustek-scanexpress-1200-ub-plus", it would search for sbfw.usb and
the correct scanner name would be displayed.
