That's interesting---same thing happens with me when I compile the CVS
version of SANE on my Debian 32-bit system.
The older system version works fine though.

In more detail: the preview window "works" in the sense that you can
do actions on it like selecting an area, just there is no display (it
is all grey) and you cannot see where the buttons are to press so it
is guesswork.
