This is a bug in sane-escl driver, which causes it to crash.

Basically, you have 3 options now:
1. You may try to help Thierry HUCHARD (the author of sane-escl) to 
debug his driver
2. You may uninstall ippusbxd in a hope that sane-pixma will work with 
your scanner via USB, as Thierry suggested
3. You may may install sane-airscan, the independent eSCL/WSD driver:

sane-airscan can be downloaded from here:

https://github.com/alexpevzner/sane-airscan - project page
https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/pzz/ - binary packages

Note, ippusbxd is officially deprecated and replaced with ipp-usb. It 
works much more reliable. You can download ipp-usb binary package from 
the repository, mentioned above.

Note also, the newest version of Debian/Ubuntu will come with 
sane-airscan and ipp-usb included by default;
