Assuming that the timing hypothesis is true, then I could try that, if
I could get hands-free operation with it.

Do you mean after each page in the ADF?  Are you saying run like this?

        while adf-is-full-p
                scanimage ... --batch-count 1 ... > ...

If so, what would I use to determine whether the adf is full?  The
scanimage man page says nothing about exit codes and I can't be around
to control-C the script when it is done.

Thanks for the idea.
