Before reporting, you might want to try the command line scanner tool
scanimage --format=tiff --reslution=300 > scan.tiff
and see what happens. That should help you understand if the issue is
with sane-backends or elsewhere.
The -L and -T options will be usefull too. 

You may also want to try the new 1.0.20 release as that fixes quite a
few bugs. There is a feature request for it, but compiling it yourself
is not that hard if you first do a rpm rebuild on the old rpm package so
it pulls in required dependencies
Use the following script to run configure:

set -x
arch=`uname -m`
case $arch in
echo "lib =" $lib
make distclean
BACKENDS="pixma niash" ./configure \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=$lib \
    --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --with-gphoto2=/usr \
