So I read some of what Louis linked to, and then I downloaded the Mac  
OS X USB Debug Kit for 10.5.6 and installed it on the iMac running  

I disconnected the MX850 from the network and connected it to my  
10.5.6 iMac (which has the seemingly successful build and install of  
the sane-scm-2009-03-27 nightly snapshot). I started USB Prober and  
looked at the USB devices. Then

$ export SANE_DEBUG=255
$ export SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=20

Then I started USB Prober logging and

$ scanimage -T &> scanimage-T.log

scanimage hung, apparently where it always has for me. I can see that  
some of the Prober log relates to scanimage; other than that it is all  
meaningless to me. I hope it is meaningful to some of you.

The logs are available at

(USB_Prober.log is about 9.4 MB)
