[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.
