    Dear Coolscan users.

    I have had some people complaining about not beeing able to
    get the Coolscan Backend 0.43 to work with the LS30 and LS2000.

    It works fine for me so please help me by
    setting the debug environement variable before
    starting the frontend:

    setenv SANE_DEBUG_COOLSCAN 128

    Plase send me the debug output (unless it is more than 200kB,
    in that case try scanning smaller images).
    Please indicate:
    You SCSI card, SCSI lowlevel driver, sane version, backend version,
    what settings you used with the backend and anything that may
    give me an idea on how to reproduce your error.

    Thanks for your help.
