I am using sane-backends-1.0.20 with xsane-0.996 on ubuntu 9.04 

I have a Epson Perfection V700 PHOTO (a.k.a. GT-X900).

I can make scans with this setup, but I think the software is limiting 
the scan size of this scanner.

Under "transparency unit" of xsane the maximum geometry is 5.9 x 9.7 in, 
where it ought to be 8 x 10 in.  Under the XP bundled software 
(FineReader 6.0 Sprint), I can get 8x10 in transparency scans (full 
contact sheets) from this scanner.

Under "flatbed" of xsane the geometry is 8.5 in x 11.7 in, which is correct.

How do I look into how to increase the scan area under "transparency?"  
I obtained this unit primarily to make contact sheets of B&W negatives, 
which require an 8x10 scan area.

Thank you in advance.
