There are lines commented out both in 55-libsane.rules
and in 70-scanner.fdi for models which are actually supported
because of an unexpeced side-effect of the solution of bug #439193.
I reopened bug #439193.

Nevertheless I wonder why the workaround which
is shown by YaST (see comment #3) is not simply used:
.. you could access
the scanner via the 'saned' as a workaround.
For this workaround choose 'scanning via network'
and select the 'local host configuration'.
In particular on a workstation in a trusted network
environment (e.g. when the Suse firewall protects it
from acceess from the external network zone / Internet)
this workaround should cause no security problems.
