This looks like the problem fixed by commit
8ec394d6489dac4226fd22f6cac02dd1a89c400c which was included in version


will these few patches lines probably find a way into 1.0.20-2?

Log a bug with the fix and it will be included in the next release most likely.

I confirm, that with sane-backend-1.0.21, the problem is gone. Take hp3500.c from sane-backend-1.0.21.orig and integrate it into the patched 1.0.21. See diff to confirm, that there are no side-effects to be expected.

I have to admit, that my own "backported" hp3500.c did not solve the problem reliably. I used the ubuntu source tree with all its' other patches applied, then with a 1.0.20 source tree without the ubuntu patches, patched against 1.0.21, which worked like a charm.

I am willing to test your approach, if you need further feedback.

I had the same problem until I used another USB port. But now Xsane closes without warning after the scan is complete. The version of sane is 1.0.14-9 which was installed through adept. My scanner is a HP Scanjet 3500c

Take hp3500.c from rational backend-1.0.21.orig and coordinate it into the fixed 1.0.21. See diff to affirm, that there are no results not out of the ordinary

Yes. ScanGear MP v1.8 works directly and also through Gimp for my printer/scanner. I'm happy that libsane-pixma made it work with Xsane so I didn't have to switch to different software.
