Looking at the gzip'ed log, you are experiencing the same problem as
discussed in this thread:


The fix for the initial problem in that thread is responsible for the
cancellation you are experiencing.  You can try reverting the patch[1],
hack up a model specific work-around as suggested in [2] or try the
epkowa backend that comes with Image Scan! for Linux (available via my
employer's website[3]).
