  After a couple of updates including SANE and sane-utils, the scanner
now works properly again.

Prior to this:

frank@squeeze:~$ sane-find-scanner

  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make
sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
  # Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating
  # If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x220d [CanoScan],
chip=LM9832/3) at libusb:002:002

  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary
  # can't be detected by this program.

  # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once
  # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
  # necessary.

frank@squeeze:~$ scanimage -L
