I got and posted this Epson 1640SU ADF problem with Sane 1.0.14 on Suse 
Linux 9.1 and on SJDS2/Linux.

Another user replied later that also Sane 1.013 on Suse Linux didn't 
work. However, stepping back to Sane 1.08 did work on Suse. I did the 
same and 1.08 worked for both Suse 9.1 and SJDS/Linux.

Karl Heinz should compare Sane 1.014 vs 1.08 to try to debug the 
problem. I haven't heard more about this ;-) maybe now as this is a 
problem for more of us?
