I do not believe that it is a kernel issue; I just mentioned the kernel to
indicate that I have a standard "Etch" install - no upgrades!.
I suspect it is due to some of the major rationalisations there were
introduced in Etch and have not yet been taken onboard by EPSON/EPKOWA in
its supplied plugins.

The error message - when iscan cannot find the scanner - reads:
/usr/share/iscan/esfw54.bin/esfw54.bin : Not a directory
This error message is valid.
"esfw54.bin" is not a directory but a file and it is located in
"/usr/share/iscan/" (I have placed copies in a few other places - just in
case the alternatives locations can be found more easily by "iscan").
