[sane-devel] How can I get information about new scanner on my usb port

I want to write an application where you can change the scanner during
the application is running.

I start the app with no scanner on an usb port. It shows me, no scanner
available. Then I put a scanner on a usb port and want to run a scan.
But neither sane_get_device nor doing sane_exit and sane_init again
show me that i have a new scanner. Only the restart of the app show me
the scanner.

Does anybody know how I can manage that?
