[sane-devel] sane-fujitsu problem with ADF

First of all, sorry for my terrible English.

I have a Fujitsu SI-5070C scanner, when I try to scan documents with
ADF the first document goes well but the subsequent documents stuck in
After trying a lot I figure out that the problem apparently is the page size.

ofm at ofm-siged:~$ scanadf -t 0 -l 0 -x 210 -y 297 --resolution 300
--source 'ADF Front'
scanadf: rounded value of br-x from 210 to 210.01
scanadf: rounded value of br-y from 297 to 279.364
scanadf: sane_read: Error during device I/O
Error during device I/O
Scanned 0 pages

scanadf insist in change y value from 297 to 279.364 wich is short
than my document (A4 paper - 210x297 mm)

Looking at the mailing list I see some messages that mention
"pagewidth" and "pageheight" parameters, but I can't use these
parameters here:

ofm at ofm-siged:~$ scanimage --pagewidth 210 --pageheight 297 -t 0 -l 0
-x 210 -y 297 --resolution 300 --source 'ADF Front'
scanimage: unrecognized option '--pagewidth'

ofm at ofm-siged:~$ scanimage --pageheight 297 -t 0 -l 0 -x 210 -y 297
--resolution 300 --source 'ADF Front'
scanimage: unrecognized option '--pageheight'

There are something I missing?

 My scanadf --help:
