Interesting. My scanner is now working with sane-backends 1.0.18-r2
after I turned the /proc/scsi support on in the kernel. So I'm presuming
my rev of 1.0.18 doesn't have the bug. Or are you saying that scanimage
should support the scanner even without /proc/scsi support but that
1.0.18 has a bug that prevents that from happening? In any case, thanks 
for the heads-up about 1.0.18.
