I downgraded to 1.0.18r6 using the Gentoo portage repository.

The scanner worked with both scanimage and xsane.

Then I downloaded the 1.0.19r2 gentoo package and replaced three files 
with the ones from 1.0.18r6:

backend/avision.c		(225,740 bytes 06/06/2006 10:32:02 AM)
backend/avision.conf.in 	(543 bytes 06/06/2006 10:32:02 AM)
backend/avision.h		(18,719 bytes 06/06/2006 10:32:02 AM)

I compiled, installed, and tested.  I did not get any build errors.  It 
installed fine.  I am using the default /etc/sane.d/ conf files from 
1.0.19.  I tried xsane and it works properly.  No errors, and I get nice
