I'd have a look in /etc and see if there is a configuration file 
relating to xsane etc.  Or possibly even try...

fgrep /etc/* | less

That'll list every file that contains the string and pipe the 
output to less (so you can scroll up and down if there are any error 
messages or multiple files that contain the string).

Hope this helps.
