Doesn't work, but I don't have a "scsi_generic" folder in  /sys/class,
so can't file a bug :-/

All I have is /sys/class/scsi_device and /sys/class/scsi_host

I looked in scsi_device/ and found a link to a another folder,
which contained a few tiny text files, including 'vendor' and 'model',
which cleared showed that the scanner was properly recognized : "AGFA"
and "Snapscan 1236".

However in the hardware/device manager, the scanner/device is not
identified, there is no way one could guess it's a scanner or anything,
the only string says "SCSI device".

forum, sorry if there is any HTML stuff...
