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/22.214.171.124 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".
PS: Evolution is broken in Breezy, so I am writing this from the web
forum, sorry if there is any HTML stuff...
