A status value of 7 indicates there are no documents in feeder as
scanimage already mentioned. I'm wondering whether that status is
reported by the device half-way through an on-going scan. If the
backend passes that through to the scanimage as soon as it is received,
instead of continuing to provide image data until the image is complete
(status value of 5) first, you would get the behaviour you mention.

Just set it to 127 if you don't know. The developers should be able to
slice and dice the result as needed.
Hope this helps,
