Description Patrick 2003-06-14 20:14:43 UTC
Description of problem:

When I do a scan to preview the contents of the scan area using xsane, the
program *always* freezes at approximately 1" from the top of the scan preview
area. My scanner is an hp scanjet 5300c with a usb connection.

I have noticed inconsistencies with the 'readiness' of the scanner as well.
Doing a hard reboot seems to reset the scanner into a working state again in
this case. As a result I suspect a problem in the scanner kernel module rather
than in xsane. However, this may be related to the fact that I have to kill the
program and it cannot reset the scanner to a proper state as a result.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

xsane 0.89-3
sane-backends 1.09-5

How reproducible:

Every time.

This doesn't seem to be a particularly well-supported scanner, from a quick search.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
