judging from the logs you sent, it is something about the DATA0/1 usb
toggle again. since almost all these transactions involve a single write
and 2 reads, i am surprised that it acts stupid on the second read, but
not the first. the fi-4120c just locks up at this point. the 4120c2
self-resets the toggle after 30 seconds, i think (its not documented).
i think a retry on the second read might fix that, i will code it up and
send you a patch.

later model fujitsu scanners can do monochrome scans using any one of the
three color heads. default is green. this is useful for dropout of color
printed forms or losing editors marks, etc. older scanners you have to
change to a colored lamp. having that line commented is no worse than it
not working, like it was before :) if you did want to specify the color,
you could not do it til this code is fixed.
