In the full logs there never was an error code.  It simple repeated a line 
line this:

[epson2] buf[113] ff .

for 15 MB.  The only difference between each line was the number inside the 
brackets.  Periodically there was also a line that would look like this:

[epson2] ..

sane-backends 1.0.20 is a difficult long-term solution because it breaks udev on 
my system.  I am hopeful that the fix you have already recommended will solve 
this problem.  I will also take a look at epkowa.
