    It's supposed to be 'SCANNER', but it doesn't much matter.

    Actually four times: at daisy chain addresses 1, 2, and 3, and also as
    a non-chain-aware device.

    Yes, but annoying, and eventually there may be drivers that actually
    want to look at this information.

    I guess this is the scanner's fault, since a ZIP250 with chained Epson
    Stylus colour 760 is reported correctly.

    Not that I expect it to make any difference, but if you leave off
    'reset=1', does that make any difference?

    Does anyone else see this?
