It could have to do with the way XSane restores settings and options
management in the backend. It's basically one gigantic loop that sets an
option then reloads the option descriptors, rinse, repeat.

If the backend changes the resolution in reaction to another setting
being modified, it's entirely possible XSane doesn't set it back. It's
been a while since I last looked into this, but that's my recollection.

Pretty much the only explanation I can see for what Joseph is seeing.
