Installed iscan-2.8.0-1.c2.i386.rpm, commented epson from dll.conf, 
commented out "usb 0x04b8 0x0838" from epson.conf and added it to 
xsane started working
commented out the entry from epkowa.conf, placed it back in epson.conf - 
xsane works
removed iscan package, xsane works
rebooted, still works

blinked a few times and reinstalled iscan just to be on the safe side :)

I'm guessing iscan uploaded some firmware to the scanner, so it works now..?
