using this command starts iscan, selecting scan to printer still shows
.png and .tiff greyed out. cliclking scan gives following error:
finemanruss at linux-f836:/usr/lib64> ltdl_library_path=/usr/lib64 iscan

I just reported to Novell bugzilla (459215). Also tried to enter it on
https://www.avasys.jp/secure/english/linux_e/support_form.html but I get a
list of apache and java errors. says cannot contact server. Do I need to log
on some where to report this?
