[sane-devel] Slow scanner & timeout

I have an HP ScanJet 6300c that I've been using successfully with sane
for some time now.
I have a problem when I use the XPA. With the XPA, the scanner takes a
LONG time (it waits for the XPA lamp to warm up) to handle scan
requests. The problem is that sane timeouts with an I/O error before
the scanner is ready. When the scanner is ready (you can hear it
attempt to start the scan), sane is no longer listening.
This scanner has both SCSI & USB interfaces. I've used this scanner
with XPA & sane many years ago with the SCSI interface -- it worked with
SCSI. I'm using the USB interface now.
I did some searching on the Internet and I didn't see any definite
answer. I don't know if this is a sane issue or a USB one. dmesg and
/var/log/messages yield no error messages or warnings.
I use OpenSUSE 11.1 with the following packages:
# rpm -qa |grep sane
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
