What version of sane-backends (aka libsane) are you running? Did you
check our support page for that exact version?

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and a bug was filed in Launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xsane/+bug/475185) but nobody could tell me which component was causing the problem so I thought I'll ask here.
