	could you please do :

	export SANE_DEBUG_GENESYS_GL646=255

	Then do scanimage --resolution=100 --mode=color 2>scan.log >out.pnm

	Then send me the 'scan.log' file, maybe directly since there is a 45K 
threshold on the posts within this list.

	I hope the differences between your MD5345 and my MD6471 aren't big, since 
htey share the same USB ID and it could be difficult to autodetect which is 
plugged ...
