I have a MD5345 USB sanner, sane-backend 1.0.16 installed and
some problems.

Currently I can only scan in monochrome (gray) mode with default
resolution. Any other configuration fails.

In this (failing) case, the scanner head starts it's initialisation,
short move forward and back and then it remains in the start position.
After some time I get an timeout error.

scanimage -L works
scanimage -T works

After having done a couple of b&w scans, mostly I have to skip
the first 10mm or so (shift the image about 10mm in y direction).

My Linux box is dual PIII, 768 MB, based on SuSE 8.1. sane-backends-1.0.16 
is compiled from scratch without problems.

Any idea, how to fix those problems? Most important are color scans.
