[sane-devel] using scanners unable to USB_AUTOSUSPEND

Hi all,

recently I had problems with my old EPSON 1670 Scanner, because it 
doesn't support usb autosuspend that most distros enable by default in 
the linux kernel. That causes scanimage or other applications (e.g. like 
scanner button daemon scanbd) to freeze or even reading wrong values.

If anyone is interested: I have put some hints in README.txt of scanbd.
You can find it at
