Description of Problem:
Choosing a jpeg format output in xsane menu causes an immediate
program termination with a "Floating point exception".

Sigh! Yesterday it was bombing out always and today I cannot reproduce

But the difference is that today I have recompiled sane-backends due to
a bug #56540.
The 0.81 changelog mentions floating point exceptions. I wonder if that fixes
Is it previews that this happens with?

anything out of a scanner caused an immediate floating point exception

On the top of that I do not an access to that scanner anymore as it went
to its real owner.
I'm going to mark this as closed, since I can't reproduce it here and both
xsane and sane have had floating point problems fixed recently.
