My understanding was FLATBED used -l,-t,-x,-y & ADF used --pagewidth, --pageheight.
Since you have "unlocked" scan-area/paper-size in .18 not sure where FLATBED or ADF
references should be included now.

The command worked.
This behavior is confusing:
  1. Cannot use defaults for the other arguments when using
     --pagewidth [Invalid Argument], but with -x it is recognized?
  2. Using -y without --pageheight does "lock" both in fi5120C ADF.
  3. Using -x & --pagewidth in combination versus -l & -x?
Will dutifully pass all 4 arguments in .18.
