Unfortunately, I don't have a solution to you, but I can share that I'm
having the same problem on Red Hat Linux 5.0 (kernel 2.0.33). Again,
scanimage works fine, but xscanimage terminates immediately upon being
run, with no output or anything. Even xscanimage -h does nothing.

In addition, when the GIMP (0.99.16) attempts to autodetect xscanimage
as a plug-in, I get the following message:query plug-in:


/usr/local/lib/gimp/0.99/plug-ins/xscanimage: Segmentation fault
[n]othing, [e]xit, [s]tack trace, [a]ttach to process:

Curiously, this is also happening with the jpeg and xpm plug-ins. If
anybody has any ideas, I'd love to hear them! Thanks!
