May be it's not a SANE specific problem but kernel's experimental
changes and updated libraries that conflict with binary verions provided
by Ubuntu, and other distros. At least, testing with a backend (not
related to your scanner), the one provided by distro didn't work and
the same one compiled from SANE sources in Feisty worked like a charm.

So one solution could be to compile SANE against current library versions
in each distro and after testing its funtionability, notify maintainers
to update their packages.
