Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I observed the following on my trusty machine.

  $ service saned status
  /etc/init.d/saned: 73: [: =: unexpected operator
  saned is not running, but pidfile existed.
  rm: remove write-protected regular file ‘/var/run/saned.pid’? n

  $ sudo service saned status
  saned is running.

  In other words, the status call fails unless done from root.
