Thanks you for listing it. Seems I am using 1.0.14-7 for sane and
1.0.20-4ubuntu3 for sane-utils. I will check with the Debian servers
or with the next dist-upgrade if this issue is still there.

Meanwhile I encountered a list of other questions, issues and/or bugs:

For full details please first look at the email attachment.

# issu01:
Somehow the scanner just became undetectable, I had to pull the power
cord, redo the chgrp command, and then the devices became detectable

# issu02:
Is there really no poweron/poweroff button for the devices?

# question02:
Is it normal to have command options with spaces like "ADF Duplex"
"ADF Back" "ADF Front"

# question03:
Can it be that "ADF Back" and "ADF Front" are reversed :) I have to
use "ADF Back" when the text is on the Front side of the scanner

# bug02:
It seems "ADF Back" and "ADF Front" are outputing something that is
not on the original paper, only "ADF Duplex" seem to work here...

# bug03:
It seems around 15mm of text is missing from the bottom of all pages
when trying to scan simple A4 pages. Page geometry: 5096x6600+0+0

Any help would be welcome.

Kind regards,

Jelle de Jong
