Existing configuration file seems to stop skanlite functionality

skanlite (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I got a laptop with Kubuntu 18.04. There are two scanners are connected, both working fine with Xsane via Gimp.

Skanlite starting without any existing config file (previously deleted it), skanlite starts, detects the two scanners. I choose one of the scanners, and skanlite works like it used to in previous Kubuntu versions. If i quit skanlite now, and restart ist, skanlite detects the two scanners correctly again, but now it does not scan anything correctly. The Preview shows an nearly white image (some yellow space in the upper rigth conner of the preview image), the scanned image data is completely useless.

If I quit skanlite again, and remove the config file, and restart skanlite, for this time skanlite will work correctly again.

I forgot. I have a second laptop, also running Kubuntu 18.04, fresh installed. On this machine the exact same error occurs.
