For my SCSI and USB scanners I had to add users who need scanner access
to the "disk" group.  /dev/sg* doesn't seem to be setup in
/etc/security/console.perms and the default permissions are 0660 owned
by root.disk.

Maybe sane was set uid root in previous releases?  I don't think I ever
had to do that in RH9.  But perhaps I'm mistaken.
