I have now a Umax Astra 4500 and will try to get it working. The
chipset used by this scanner is labelled "Avision B2" so I'm not sure
if that's really a gl646 based scanner. However, the output of
cat proc/bus/usb/devices of your scanner is very similar to the one of
my scanner.

If you don't fear losing your warranty, could you open the scanner and
have a look at the names printed on the chips?
