That scanner is listed as "untested" so you were lucky if it worked.

Some more data points: Linux 2.6.7rc2, ohci host controller, libusb 0.1.8

The following scanners do work without any trouble:

Mustek 1200 CU (mustek_usb)
Mustek BearPaw 1200 CU (gt68xx)
Mustek BearPaw 2400 CU Plus (gt68xx)
Plustek OpticPro U16B (gt68xx)
Plustek Opticpro UT16 (plustek)

That may be a hint, but needn't as SANE may trigger a bug in the
kernel by accessing the scanner differently.

First, we need to find out when this bug happens and in which part of
SANE or the kernel it is.

export SANE_DEBUG_CANON630U=255
