	in order to debug, you need to compile a debug version of SANE. You must 
get the sources and compile them _without_ installing them. ie doing 'make' 
but not 'make install'. Before compiling you must edit lexmark.h and change 
the '#undef DEEP_DEBUG' in it to '#define DEEP_DEBUG 1'.
	Once compiled, it can be run locally from the 'backend' sub-directory 
with the appended run-lexmark shell which has to be copied in 'backend'. It 
will generate a lexmark-scan.log and various *.pnm files. Please send them all 
to me so that I can find exactly what is going on.
