I dislike replying to my own message; but I seem to have omitted the 
most important info.  Duh:

	$ scanimage -V
	scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.23; backend version 1.0.23

I have tried cranking up SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA in my environment.  Confirmed 
that what kills it is setting --mode to anything explicit other than 
"Color" or "Gray" (as `scanimage -A` indeed promised, and the sources 
seem to indicate).

Everything else seems to work.  The problem surface is quite narrow.
