xsane and simple-scan only working as root

Thanks for your hints. I noticed that the only device in /dev/usb/ was
owned by the group "lp", and adding my user to "lp" in fact made scanning
work. (This is a combined printer/scanner, so I guess that's the reason.)

Well, except that simple-scan exits with an error message along the lines
of "stack smashing detected, exiting" unless running as root. But, I don't
care much as xsane works.
