    I've just discovered that this problem only occurs when scanning over
    the network. If I ssh to elrond and run scanimage there, I can get a
    decent scan (at least at up to 300 DPI). Did the sane network protocol
    change incompatibly between versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.4? Or are there
    known bugs with network scanning prior to version 1.0.4?
