Very many thanks for the testing!

What I have as default canon.conf in our newest sane package
results the same but it is a bit more verbose and /dev/scanner
is no longer mentioned because it is outdated.
# canon.conf
# Activate exactly one of the following choices:
# Probe on all /dev/sg* devices:
# Probe for "CANON" on all /dev/sg* devices:
#scsi CANON
# Probe only on one fixed device:

I suggest to have this one as default in the next SANE version
or perhaps "scsi CANON" to be a bit more safe but only if all
scanners which are supported by the canon backend use exactly
this manufacturer name (as I don't know this I used only "scsi").
