No go, but in just ensuring that xinetd was running the server, by using strace 
the problem had new light shone on it.  The root issue seems to be a permissions 
issue on /usr/local/...  brscan3 wants to read some files in there.

On my machine /usr/local is mounted via NFS4/Kerberos.  So when I run saned -a 
saned with -d at my shell prompt, the needed tickets were available for saned to 
access /usr/local.  When started from an initscript and changing it's working
UID to saned, permissions were not available to read /usr/local.

TBH, this is one aspect of the Kerberized NFS that I am not entirely clear on, 
but now that I know exactly what the problem is, I have something to chase down 

Thanx for all the help!


P.S. Can you add this printer:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04f9:01e9 Brother Industries, Ltd 

to the list of printers in the udev rules file.  It's a Brother DCP-7040.
