OK, this sounds pretty similar to what I've heard of before. Maybe
we can get to the bottom of it.

OK. You said you tried both the 0.8 and 1.0 experimental versions, right?
How about version 0.7? I doubt that will do the trick, but it's worth
a shot I guess.

I'd like to see some sample pictures (the pnms are fine. I'd prefer
to see the raw data, with no compression or anything).

I'm in the process of packing stuff up for a move in about a week, and
my scanner is already boxed up. I won't be able to do much on the
development end of things in the meantime, but another thing you
can try is setting SANE_DEBUG_SNAPSCAN to 10 and piping standard
error into a file when you run xscanimage. I'd like to see if there
are any weird errors or anything.
