Weird that you don't see epson:libusb:004:005 then.

Hmm, is user part of the appropriate group (scanner, by default)?

Ouch! The device is not talking back to you. You should get a one
byte reply here, either 0x06 (ACK) or 0x15 (NAK).
Tom, can you repeat the scanimage command to get the USB debugging

SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_USB=127 scanimage > image.pnm 2> epkowa-usb.log
Hope this helps,
