I have made a new binary package for MacOS X from a fresh CVS checkout 
and with a new version of the pthread_cancel workaround patch. The new 
version of the patch mimics the behaviour of the original code very 
closely (but without calling pthred_cancel) and does not change the 
stucture of the thread implementation as the previous patch did.

If you have experienced any thread related problems with SANE on MacOS X 
the new version might help you. Some backends have also been updated to 
use the sanei_thread routines instead of fork since the release, so this 
package based on the CVS checkout should work better for scanners using 
such backends.

The packages are available on http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/ together 
with a new version of the TWAIN SANE Interface.
