In my case, w/problems scanning from win32-xsane across the network using
an Epson Perfection 1250, I commented out all backends except net and
plustek from dll.conf.

This had no impact on my problem, where I could
sucessfully scan once but then the scanner is left in an unusable state
and and additional scan from any other machine fails.
