Bug#520938: I got it working now.
I just wanted to write you that the bug still is there, but
experimented some more, using -v, strace, and /var/log/syslog.
Apart from using hp-setup and hp-plugin, one needs to manually install
everything hp-check tells one, plus python-qt4 and libhpmud-dev (which
contains libhpmud.so), and now it seems to work.
Well. a -dev package containing a .so, that seems a WTF on its own,
The good thing is that it is working now. The bad thing is that I
cannot remember the exact steps. But I've got a second machine where it
did not work before, so I might have enough time to try to reproduce
the steps and tell you - as I don't have to reboot into windows simply
for scanning, which saves me some time.
Thanks for your patience,

was so lousy that it permitted buffer overflows, and there are probably
thousands more lurking in your code." - Bruce Schneier
