I'm sorry for my inprecise description of my problem.

stock rh61 kernel, 2.2.12-20
adaptec 1505 scsi card(aha 152x driver)
dual celeron machine

snapscan backend 0.7

everything WAS working before i did a lot of upgrades of everything.
before i was running rh52, sane 1.0, backend 0.7(i think)
and it was a single amd k6-2 cpu.

AND i tested a simmilar configuration with my laptop running the same
linux stuff,
but with an adaptec pcmcia card. results are the same.

and, well, it works under windows.
termination seems ok and all. the scanner is the only thing on that
i have a tekram dc390 for other devices.

when i used sane-1.0.1, i could get nothing out of the scanner, with
sane-devel-19991119 i can do previews fine, but not scan entire images.
this is why i thought SG_BIGBUF would solve it, since small scans work.

the thing is very mysterious, other people seem to use the same config
as I and gets it working.
