In my box it helped, to set the permissions of the scanner device
more liberal:

E. g.: As root:
# chmod 666 /dev/uscanner0

U can do that automatically via the devd.conf(5) and

% cat /etc/devfs.conf 
perm uscanner0 0664

% cat /etc/devd.conf 
options {
        pid-file "/var/run/devd.pid";
attach 10 {
        device-name "uscanner0";
        action "/etc/rc.d/devfs start";

I hope, I understood the question correctly...
