Please get a current version of SANE. 1.0.3 is the current stable
version, 1.0.4 will be released in about two weeks. If I remember
correctly, there was a bug concerning 3-pass scanners in xscanimage.
Quite some bugfixes for the Mustek backend went into SAANE 1.0.3.
You can get the source code from http://www.mostang.com/sane/ .
The Mustek backend homepage is at http://hmgt.home.pages.de/sane/.
Are you sure that this scanner is called 600CX? I have only seen a
MSF-6000 CX until now. When you have installed the new SANE, please
send to me the result (dbg.out) of
SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK=255 scanimage -L 2>dbg.out

Maybe the timeout values are lower with 2.4.x. I think I have seen
similar problems but haven't look to closely at this until now.

My 6000CX works quite fine for me.
