I have tried it as root. As a regular user, I get nowhere at all, even though
the device is

     rw-rw-r-- root scand

Obviously, I don't quite understand the permissions which apply to the scanner.
I thought if the scand had write access, all was well (presuming the scand can
be started by inetd). Can you enlighten me?
