Job done.  It did need that 'sleep' command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.  It 
wouldn't work without it.  Once that was in, it was fine.  A desktop link is 
now created to VueScan (which, incidentally, creates much better scans than 
XSane, for me, at any rate), and non-tech husband can scan to his heart's 
content ;-)

Thanks for all the help.
