[sane-devel] HP scanjet 5590 duplex ADF

I bought an HP Scanjet 5590 as it seemed to be very compatible and also 
fairly modern.

The Xsane frontend produces an error if I try to use the Duplex ADF option:
"Failed to start scanner:Invalid argument".

Running xsane from a terminal, it reports:
"[hp5590] Top Y (436) + pixels Y (2363) exceedes max Y 2344"

It appears to double the no. of Y pixels (presumably because double 
sided) but the scanner complains.

I don't know if this is in the backend or sane, so I'm posting, hoping 
that someone will tell where I should post (if not here).

OS: OpenSuse Leap 42.1 (64-bit)
