Hi All,

One more bug report to go.

You would think that programs residing on the same machine
as the scanner would use Sane Frontend, but those that
are intended for the Enterprise will often use Sane Backends.
It other words, they expect to network to sane.  PDF Studio is
an example of such a program

So an really easy fix is to insert
into the default installation of /etc/sane.d/saned.conf

And into sample configuration file of "man saned"

This will save those enterprise software user who
are using their scanner on the same machine as
their scanner ACRES and ACRES of frustration.

And it won't cause any harm to ANYONE else.

Many thanks,

p.s. does not work, but that is a story
for another day.
