Scanning Xpro

Wondering about the best way to scan crossprocessed negatives. The question is, do them as negs, and have the scanner do all its auto-things; or, scan as positive, and invert them in Photoshop. The question is being discussed here, in the Flickr xpro group.
This photo (above) was taken with the Sporti, Fuji Velvia 100. It was scanned as a negative, which means the scanner inverted it, and did all kinds of automatic stuff with the colour range and balance.Now this one was scanned as it was, that is, as a neg, and then inverted. I think it has a better colour range. Look at the sculpture. And the pair of jeans to the left.
