I have an "Epson Perfection 1240U Photo" scanner.
It works well in Xubuntu 7.10 (gutsy) with xsane 0.991.
It works very slowly in Xubuntu 8.04 (hardy, on a separate partition of the very same IBM T42, xsane 0.995).

It waits for a minute or longer before doing anything. Only the LED is blinking and all xsane windows go grey and don't react to anything. Of course I can kill xsane, but if I wait endlessly, it wakes up and does the work.

Any idea? :confused:

Thank you in advance!
