Hmmm, I take it back, my 1488 DID crash also after a full rescan. I was fooled by the web interface still working and saying that the scanner had returned to idle.
I still didn’t try actually streaming from 1488 but I just went back to the web interface and it was down, then when checking the logfile on the nslu2 it definitely was dead (as confirmed by ps also).
I have just restarted it and it has come up successfully. Not tried rescanning again yet; it was scanned up-to-date yesterday (with previous nightly build), so I’ll see if it stays up without rescanning.
It does seem that full rescanning is fatally broken again (for at least two of us); sorry if my earlier posting misled anyone.
