Can anyone tell me where to file bug report for Iscan? I can scan to a file 
just fine (Epson CX6600) but try as I can to scan to a printer and Iscan just 
closes down.

Using Iscan version Epkowa driver from AVASYA. OpenSUSE 11.0. Ran fine on 10.3 
and previous versions. Thought I saw something about have to use older version
