No, this has nothing to do with eSCL.
ippusbxd allows you to use escl backends on the usb.
The problem is that sane doesn't detect the scanner on the usb anymore, 
so PIXMA can't be used anymore.
I don't know if ippusbxd solved the problem?
in any case if the device has a usb driver, ippusbxd is not necessary!
