hmm. an invalid params error after you have already transferred the
first block.  that seems odd. but, it sounds like the fi-5900, which
has some scan size limitations and is also a large format (12x35 inch)
scanner. can you try making some small Lineart scans, and vary the
width a little and see if that helps?

can you show a small sample of that? i bet we are using the wrong
color interlace mode, it can be fixed easily, if we can determine
which one to use...

can you try running the version that is in sane cvs instead? there
have been a few bug fixes and features added.
