Thanks for noticing this. It really is a weird problem. The program that crashes
is the scan client (either xsane or xscanimage), saned continues running. It
happens just as the preview pass has completed. As it previews, you see the image
appearing in the preview window, and when it finishes, bam! The program crashes.
It is possible to manually define the scan area, then you get your image from
within the window you set when you scan, but you can't see the preview to know
where it falls on the image.
