Hello Sane developers

Mr. Meier-Geinitz, thank you very much for your fast reply on my
Unfortunaley, the problem seams to continue to exist even thought I have
applied the patch.
There was however some problems when I patched it:

"patching file 'backend/mustek.c'
Hunk #1 succeeded at 1873 with fuzz 1 (offset 479 lines)
Hunk #2 FAILED at 1883
Hunk #3 FAILED at 1900
2 out of 3 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to backend/mustek.c.rej"

I belive I succeeded to uninstall the RPM version of the software and
that the new software was installed when I typed "make install" but the
problem seams to be left.

Well, the difference is that I now kan run Xscanimage without setting
the "linedistance-fix" but it still generates very funny pictures. 300
dpi is now sharp but the colors is totaly wrong (only blue, like an
B/W picture but in blue). In 150 dpi it is still stripes all over the
I have tried to change the strip height but that don't seam to help
(first I thought the I/O card was to slow but it don't seam to be the
case, more likley some kind of strange behavior in the backend when it
is supposed to put the colors togehter to one picture?)

Is there any hope that this ever will work? (Btw, can I be sure that a
'make install' will write over all previous installed version of the
same sane (1.0.1-3) or do I have to remove them manually?)
Is it my scanner that is being evil or is it just not compatible with
SANE? Anyone having succeded in using a version 1.0 scanner (Mustek 600
IIN) and got it to scan colors?

Well, this is driving me inSANE =)
So close and yet so far away..
