Hello Sane people,

I'm trying to revive my old Nikon LS-20 SCSI scanner on an Apple  
Powerbook G3 Wallstreet running Ubuntu 7.04.

The SANE distro included with Ubuntu initially recognizes the  
scanner, but then pops up an error message two or three times saying:

Failed to obtain value of option source: Invalid argument.

After closing the error message for the third time, SANE crashes.  
Then I can't access the scanner without a reboot.

Suggestions? Permissions problem? SCSI problem? Hardware problem?

SANE has worked before with this scanner, on the same machine but  
running YDL 4.

I'm not the most fluent in Linux, so if the answer is obvious, my
