I'm also a semi-frustrated Vuescan user and while I no longer worry about
setting the black and white points before scanning (I use .01% and deal
with it later in PS), I also end up previewing scans in PS to get the
exposure right. Because I frequently use the 16x multisample option and
always scan in 16-bit mode, this means I sometimes spend as much as an hour
on each image, which is a major PITA. Still, the results I get from it,
despite the aggro, are far superior to what I get from Minolta's software...
