I don't know the HP backend but 10 minutes sounds like a timeout in
the SCSI generic layer. Is there any output in the kernel logfiles
(e.g. /var/log/messages)? Otherwise you should be able to locate the
code where the backend hangs by setting the environment variable
SANE_DEBUG_HP=255 when running xsane.
