Pierre- i know nothing about your scanner, but the way sane works, the 
'dll' backend controls what other, device specific backends get loaded 
each time you run a sane front-end program.

try editing the dll.conf file on your box, and # out all the backends you 
are not using, and make sure the backend you ARE using are listed there.
