[Fwd: [sane-devel] Two problems scanning hp scanjet 7400c]

I am reposting my mail from Oct. 31 in the hope that I'll get a reply
this time. In the mean time I have upgraded to sane-backends-1.0.16 but
still have the same problems.

Particularly problem no. 1 is serious because it prevents me from using
the scanner as input to faxing (through hylafax). In stead I have to
boot Windoze each time I am sending a fax consisting of more than 1
page :-(

Thanks in advance,
Erik P. Olsen

I wonder if anybody has experienced the same problems with scanning the
scanjet 7400c:

1. If using sane-avision backend with xsane scanning more than one
document, the second scan is always incorrect. It seems to scan half
speed and it stops approx. half way through the scan. I have to exit
xsane and reenter to get the second (and subsequent scans) correct. I
don't know whether the bug is in xsane or sane-avision but it's
apparently not correctly reset when the first scan is finished.

2. scanimage --mode Line | lpr produces an all black image.

I use FC3 almost fully upgraded, sane-backends 1.0.15 and xsane 0.95
