I am using the same scanner, and I have given up using it on USB2 - all 
works in USB1.1., only pretty slow.
So I have bought a Firewire cable, and it runs great and fast now.
I am using the sane-backens-1.0.17 and xsane-0.991.
I have some issues on negative-scanning - somehow odd colors. The 
autoenhance function is certainely not enough.
I have read your bug - it sounds like my problems with the USB2, and yes 
- they changed the USB-thing from kernel 2.4 to 2.6.
Epson writes, that with this series of scanners, you risks problem 
connecting it through a hub!
