I've added "Plustek" to the subject so maybe the plutek maintainer
notices :-) I've not that much experience with lm983x devices so he
may have better/more ideas about this.

Maybe the move/reverse is because of calibration? I think you can
disable calibration in plustek.conf.

Also there may be a problem with the sensor for "scanner home" which
doesn't exist for sheet-fed scanners.

Maybe true.

If pluste supports a sheetfed scanner already, try that one. Otherwise
I guess the code must be changed to support these types of scanners.
