The man pages of xsane and xscanimages give no specific information
regarding the contents of xsane.rc and xscanimages.rc just the advice,
"The user should customize the program through the "Preferences" menu."

The xscanimages preferences menu does not include an option to customize
the xscanimages.rc file.  I can't check the preference memu for xsane
because the program terminates in a segfault.  This segfault problem and
possible solutions has been discussed in the posting Permission Problem
with xsane to the debian-user list and the posting xsane permission
problem to the sane-devel list.
