There seems to be a problem with the BSDs' USB stack at least
concerning Mustek scanners. I can only scan once. To be exact, once
the device file is closed, I have to reboot to be able to scan again.
This happens on FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD (not on Linux).

I don't know if it's Mustek-specific.

See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/usb-bsd/message/1549 and the
following messages. I haven't got any response.
