Yes the scanning with the CVS version doesn't make the scanner create 
those dreadful sounds, and it consistently works!!  Thanks!

However, something strange that was happening initially though was that 
scans were working fine, but right at the end of the scan when the scan 
was successful, I'd get this error message from xsane:

   Failed to start scanner:  Device busy

It doesn't prevent scanning, but I wouldn't think it should happen.

I don't know what was causing it, but my fiddling around with xsane 
seemed to make it go away, but I'm not sure how.  I've actually seen the 
same weird behaviour with the scanner at my office, which is a quite old 
Microtek Scanmaker E3, but working well.
