Chances are fair to good that QINTER has a workstation type entry that
includes the type the scanners are created as.  This means that both QINTER
and SCANNER can potentially allocate the devices.  If I remember rightly,
when a device can be allocated by multiple subsystems, the last subsystem to
start gets the device.

So, you can take the scanner workstation type out of QINTER (remove the
duplicate subsystem possibility)  or end and start SCANNER after QINTER
comes up (have the last subsystem up grab the device.)
