Current state of code for MX350 is now committed.

What would help to understand the issue with adf would be to have logs
of the pixma backend in both situations, no issue, and when the issue

To get a scan log, use the following commands when you are to run your
frontend program:

$ export SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=11
$ <frontend>  2>  scanimage.log

Where <frontend> is the actual frontend scanning program you are using.

You should get a scanimage.log file (text file) that contains the
backend logs.

BTW, could you give some precisions when you experience this issue:

- how many pages in adf ?
- do all pages in adf get scanned correctly, and then, printer gets
disabled ?
- Only the printer gets unaccessible, or also the scanner ?
- Is there any message or status shown on the MX350 display ?
