My system hangs when trying to scan an image using xscanimage --
usually. I've got an Adaptec AVA-2902E PCI SCSI card (I'm using the
aic7xxx kernel module -- is this correct?) and a Microtek Scanmaker X6EL
with RedHat 5.1 and kernel 2.2.13, using microtek2 backend 0.8.
The symptoms are:
* Very occasionally, when I try to insert the aic7xxx kernel module,
the system hangs. In addition, it always locks up for a couple of
seconds while inserting the module but comes back out again fine.
(I assume this is normal.)
* The scanner is detected by the SCSI module just fine:
[After typing "/sbin/modprobe aic7xxx":]

* However, when I enter xscanimage and actually try to scan an image,
the system (usually) hangs. Only two times have I gotten the
scanner to actually scan something. One of those times, it scanned
several images before hanging; the other time, it just scanned one.
I tried to produce debug output via "xscanimage | tee saneoutput.txt"
with SANE_DEBUG_MICROTEK2 set to 30 and SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_SCSI set to 1,
but I guess it never flushed, because I ended up with a zero-length file
(but piles of stuff spewed onto the screen).
Anyway, any help you could give is very much welcome. My wife is
threatening to take back the scanner if it doesn't start working
reliably in the next couple of days. ;)
