Segfault cycling SANE handle

Bug #1023161 reported by Jeffrey Ratcliffe on 2012-07-10

Bug Description

The ADF on my HP Deskjet 8500 only ejects the last page if the SANE handle is closed, so I have to cycle it as part of the scan process. This works once, but the second time, HPLIP segfaults.

The attached example c code demonstrates the problem. Compile with:

gcc hplip_segfault.c -o hplip_segfault -lsane

Then run with:

./hplip_segfault <device name> <number of cycles>

I should point out that I am using Ubuntu Precise:

libsane-hpaio 3.12.2-1ubuntu3

Could you confirm that this is no longer a problem and that we can close the ticket?
If it is still a problem, are you still interested in finding a solution to this bug?
If you are, could you let us know, and in the current version, run the following (only once):
