Right you are Sven!  I was thinking of xsane too, being able to call it 
from Gimp.  There should be no problem with Sane and Gimp then, only 
XSane.  I haven't heard anything more out of the plugin since you 
mentioned your patches here, so I'm not sure if the author has made the 
fix or not.

So "sime", does your scanning work with Gimp 1.2.x & MDK 9.x or not?  If 
so, then all you need is the new plugin for 2.0, when the author makes 
the necessary fixes!
