Coming back to this over half a year later. I found a number of reports
today regarding scanner problems with Sane and USB3, followed the
suggestions of disabling USB3 in my BIOS and lo and behold, I was
immediately able to scan two pages (not yet tried more) without any trouble.
Running "scanimage --test" now also works.
$ apt-cache policy libsane
Ditto for sane-utils. Anything I can do to help move this along? I do have
some programming skills, including basic understanding of the USB protocol
and Linux's usb_device sub-system, though I am chronically short of time
(aren't we all?)
