Description of problem:
When scanning a document or photo, xsane ignores the settings of the
scan boundaries, whether set by clicking and dragging on the preview
window, or by inputting numbers on the advanced options geometry
window. It will only scan the original automatically determined scan
boundaries, which in my case is always the correct width of the
document, but the length is always determined to be the entire scan
capability of the scanner.
For example, if I scan a 5"x7" photo, the automatically determined
width will be (roughly) 5", but the length will be 13.963". Then, even
if I click and drag the boundaries in the preview window to be 7
inches in length, or enter 7" in the advanced options geometry window,
the scan will always be the original 13.963 inches in length, giving
me a big chunk of white data at the bottom of the scan.
This occurs in flatbed scanning as well as sheet fed scanning on my
unit, which is an HP OfficeJet 7110.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Described above
Expected Results: xsane should correctly determine scan boundaries,
and/or allow one to adjust the boundaries, and then scan the adjusted
Not sure if this is an hpoj problem or an xsane problem. I used to
have an HP OfficeJet K-60 with RH9, and the problem I'm describing
would only happen occasionally.
Is this problem still present on a current (FC4 or Rawhide) system?
I have not had this happen in FC4, so I suppose this bug can be closed.
