Thanks for the debugging tips. I also received a [private ?] response about this
issue being fixed in the 20130301 snapshot. Unfortunately, since that SEGV, my
scanner doesn't show up as far as the OS is concerned. Switched back to a
Windows machine that was working before, and that no longer sees it either.

Been too busy to troubleshoot further; multiple variables involved. Will have
another go over the weekend. It's annoying that this unit doesn't have a power
or reset button.

Know of any magic usb utils I could try to tickle it with?
