I know. That's set to "/tmp".

Ok. I moved ~/.sane/xsane away so there aren't any unusual
pereferences. Started "xsane test", selected "save mode" and put
"/tmp/blubber/image.pnm" in the filename box. Closed xsane.

Opened Gimp, called file->acquire->xsane Geräteauswahl
selected, test:1 (test must be uncommented in dll.conf),
Pressed "scan". Voila: Error during save... /tmp/blubber/image.pnm.

Some debug statements revealed that the error occurs in
xsane_start_scan, in the block after the following line:
  if (!xsane.header_size) /* first pass of multi pass scan or single pass scan */
looks like dummy_filename is set to the filename selected in save mode.
