[sane-devel] Scanning with 16 bits color depth (2 bytes/color)

Back on this topic, TPU scan with pixma backend (on MP970):
We have currently reached the following point:
- TPU works OK at 24 bits/pixels (8 bits color depth), with at least
scanimage and Xsane (bits variations between colors are normal, as per
variation of the negative color model, correctly handled then by Xsane).
This is currently in the CVS version.
- TPU at 48 bits/pixels (16 bits color depth) under debug, works OK with
We have now issues when trying to use Xsane. Horizontal color or noisy
stripes (~20 lines each) appear on the image, looking like some buffer
crash or so.
I use Xsane 0.995
I've tried also on an XP box with Xsane-win32 (0.991), and it looks I do
not get those stripes, the image seems correct.
Any one would have an idea on what's happening with Xsane on Linux ?
FYI, the pixma backend uses the RGB color model, to send the frontend
