[filmscanners] RE: VueScan/SS4000/Portra 400UC problem "solved"

Well, I finally had the opportunity to try this and it only worked
partially (got me about half way there). I still had to resort to
quitting VueScan and then restarting it. Then it previewed beautifully.
Another thing that happens periodically is VueScan changes the Media
type without warning from "Color negative" to "Slide film", and then of
course the registration as well as the contrast is all screwed up. The
only way I can fix this is to turn the SS4000 on and off. Once VueScan
has decided the Portra 400UC is slide film, I can't change its mind
without power cycling the SS4000.
