     I have ran about the same command without any problem on my 
computer. Since the usual way to find out bug is to enable debug traces, 
it is going to be difficult to solve your problem. Does xsane exhibit 
the same behavior ?
     What is your hardware ? Motherboard/CPU, USB3 ?
I'm developing on a Asrock 960GM-GS3 FX, with a AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 545 
Processor and no USB3.
