Mails larger than 10MB stand a good chance of getting dropped along the
way in my experience.

That's too bad.

That's probably the best solution even though that would change the
timing of events leading to whatever issue you're seeing disappear.
But if not setting SANE_DEBUG_BJNP makes the issue go away, then what's
the problem anyway ;-)

I'd follow Louis' suggestion trying to reproduce over USB so we can
narrow things down to either the backend proper or the BJNP code.
