it seems that the inquiry command fails. Another user reported a 
similar problem on FreeBSD a few days ago. I'm still not sure why the 
problem only seems to affect FreeBSD users, but it seems it can be 
solved by limiting the amount of data data the backend requests in 
the inquiry command.

You could either try to downgrade to sane-backends 1.0.16 (which 
shouldn't be affected by the bug) or use the latest CVS snapshot (you 
can get the sources from http://www.sane-project.org/snapshots). The 
latter option requires you to build the sane package from source.

Let me know if this fixes the problem.
