That is interesting; thanks, I'll make an inquiry about it.                                                           
So - whatever the backend gets from the scanner is possibly altered by                                                
the backend in both cases. Is there any relatively easy way to know what                                              
resolutions a scanner firmware does support before the information is                                                 
massaged by a backend?
