Thanks a lot. I'd try version iscan-2.17.0 of iscan and update you.  

Sorry for posting question twice at lists and support email. I am new to
lists, and not good at working of linux lists and their etiquette as yet,
and had never experienced response time of avasys support system. I have
just today to fix this problem, as I'd be travelling for two weeks from
tomorrow morning.

Thanks and Regards
