This sounds like a problem with the hotplug management in Ubuntu. It
could also indicate a problem with the power supply via the USB bus
(AFAIK the 3490 has no power supply of it's own). In any case it
seems it's not related to sane.
You could try unloading ehci_hcd and see if that changes anything.
This will force the bus to USB 1.1 mode. Another possibility to try
is to connect the scanner via an USB hub with a dedicated power
