[sane-devel] Canoscan LiDE 30 getting stuck on usbio_DetectLM983x

Hi all,

I've got a Canoscan LiDE 30 here that just won't play nicely with SANE...

This is what happens when plugging it in and trying scanimage -L:


[plustek] usbDev_open(auto,) - 0x10dc7b0
[plustek] Vendor ID=0x04A9, Product ID=0x220E
[plustek] usbio_DetectLM983x

(after waiting for a while)

[plustek]  * could not read version register!
[plustek] open failed: -1
[plustek] sane_get_devices (0x7fff275a03c8, 0)

Now, if I plug it in, start VirtualBox/WinXP, let it take
over/initialize the scanner, THEN repeat:


Everything's OK, and scanning works normally.

Running on Debian Wheezy/amd64, tried sane-backends 1.0.22, .23, .24
from git with no difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
