1 I'm trying to find out why a very old and basic CanonScan N650U flatbed usb
2 scanner stopped working after a recent an update to sane-backends-1.1.1-r2:

18 This scanner was able to be detected by the same user for many years now,
19 without a problem. The user is a member of groups 'scanner' and 'plugdev',
20 but was NOT a member of group 'usb'. While troubleshooting I added the user
21 to the 'usb' group, which allowed the scanner to be detected again, but I do
22 not understand why this sudden change in group ownership is now required. Any
23 ideas?
