Yeah I agree :)

Only interesting thing is 2 failed calls to usbbulkread...

Another data point - a Canon LiDE30 seems to work perfectly... and I was 
wrong with the Epsons - the 1250's work perfectly - the 1260's hang

Ahh OK - as I say - it was just a thought :P

Perhaps - I just wonder why it's only an issue on Plustek scanners - and 
even then only some...  There's a decent list of tested scanners from a 
variety of backends at http://smedley.info/sane.html and no reports of 
the issue on other backends :(

Time to crank up the debugger and see if anything shows.
