So we use the same backend and firmware with a different result.

Should it be due to my installation : I've make and installed the cvs code in
/usr/local without uninstalling the debian version which is in /usr

I've done this awfully thing because of some dependancy problem, that I haven't
managed at this time.
But I take care when I wanted to scan a film to call /usr/local/bin/xscanimage

Do you think it can be the reason of my problem ?
