There have been reports about USB trouble with Linux 2.6.5 and 2.6.6.
I don't know if that's valid for all USB scanners. As far as I can see
the reports are mostly about Epson scanners.
Nevertheless, have a look at syslog and check for bulk timeouts/errors.

I'm using Linux 2.6.7-rc2 and don't see any USB errors but I'm using
Mustek and Plustek scanners only and haven't tested 2.6.5 or 2.6.6.
