Just tried adding the above stanza into /etc/udev/10-jb.rules. Made no
difference. I really think it is something to do with the USB
implementation of the 2450 itself. Some units just may have a borked USB
port. Didn't even know the scanner had a firewire port :) I'll try that and
see what happens.
