No, I did not overlook. I read it---once again now. Do you have a
special idea, what I might have overlooked?

Yes, I have, but it's not running properly as I noticed.

skull:~# /etc/init.d/hotplug restart
Restarting hotplug subsystem: usbFATAL: Module mousedev not found.
FATAL: Module input not found.

The file /etc/hotplug/blacklist is being ignored; it contains
mousedev and input. The /etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap file didn't
contain a list of USB scanners as mentioned in
/usr/share/doc/libsane/README.Debian.gz. but I added the line

libusbscanner      0x0003      0x055f   0x021d    0x0000
0x0000       0x00
         0x00            0x00            0x00            0x00

... But this becomes off-topic here.

Thanks for your answer!
