[sane-devel] scanbd with old udev version

I am trying to convert a WD MyBook into a scanner server. Sane detects the
scanner and I was able to scan, but I cannot get scanbd to work.

May this be related to the fact that I am using a *very* old udev version
(0.125-7+lenny3) which cannot be upgraded? Check the debug output below.
How can I get scanbd running on my system?

Thanks for helping me out!
