Xsane now scans OK on the Squeeze box.

Thank you again, Dom.  This was the final brick I needed.

As a result of the info given to me by this email, I have given up on the 
Lenny box, and accepted that I just have to do all my scanning on my 
husband's computer until I get time to rebuild my desktop (which is urgently 
needed!).  I will then install Squeeze or Wheezy on it.

Many thanks to the rest of you (and, of course, Gooogle) for all the other 
bricks I needed.
