I just downloaded 0.4.2 and rebuilt. I also edited the
../sane.d/dll.conf file and commented out everything but the
coolscan (and pnm). Scanimage now recognizes the device.

However, xscanimage causes the system to lock up when I try to scan
now :-(

It locks hard and I have to power cycle to regain control - Yikes!
Now I'll have to look into *that* problem; will I ever get this thing
to work???

Thanks for your help, Andreas.
