Thanks, good to know that it works in 10.0.23.  I have managed to work
around the problem by having my scanning script reset the scanner's
usb connection after each scan, using the code at [1].  I'd rather use
this for now than go against Debian's packaging of SANE, but if my
method stops working then I'll upgrade.
