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.
