[sane-devel] Motor movement and then time-out with Canon LIDE120

I bought a Canon LIDE120 a few years ago and have been watching the
development of the driver on the sane-devel list since then.  It seems to
have quieted off recently, so I thought I'd give the scanner another shot
in Linux.

I'm running Ubuntu 17.04, here's the output of an attempt to scan:

➜  ~ scanimage -L
device `genesys:libusb:003:006' is a Canon LiDE 120 flatbed scanner
➜  ~ scanimage --device 'genesys:libusb:003:006' --format=tiff > test.tiff
scanimage: sane_start: Invalid argument
➜  ~ scanimage --version
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.25git; backend version 1.0.25

When the command to scan is sent, the motor makes a audible sound and then
nothing happens and the command times-out.

I know the LIDE120 is listed as supported on the website, and I seem to be
running up to date drivers...
