Hello Olaf,

Thank you for writing.  I'd love to be able to fix this.  Is "Image
Scan!" synonymous with the epkowa backend?  You mention image
processing.  Does that mean I should be able to fix it by way of
configuration somehow?

> FTR, what frontend are you using?

xsane is my frontend.  Could that have anything to do with it?
