I assume you insalled TWAIN SANE 3.5, because the current version of
SANE backends is 1.0.25.

I don't recall ever having a report from an OSX user of a SCSI Fujitsu
scanner, and don't have the ability to test this myself. But, we might
be able to figure it out with a debugging log. At the terminal, run:

SANE_DEBUG_FUJITSU=35 scanimage -T 2>m4097.log

Then send me m4097.log

Also, you might try a scan without the -T, that has been know to cause
issues in the past.
