I've got a HP ScanJet 4300C that seems to be a little bit

It doesn't work with the old USB code, so I updated to
8-current and compiled a kernel with the new usb2 drivers.
Now I get:

usb2_alloc_device:1590: Failure selecting configuration index 0: USB_ERR_TIMEOUT, port 2, addr 2
ugen0.2: <Hewlett Packard> at usbus0
uhub_reattach_port:402: could not allocate new device!

"usbconfig list" says:

ugen0.1: <OHCI root HUB nVidia> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON
ugen1.1: <EHCI root HUB nVidia> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON

Is there anything I can do, except for forgetting about
this scanner alltogether?

(The scanner does have an LPT connector, but the computer
does not.  I assume that the scanner wouldn't work with a
USB-printer adapter either, because SANE probably only
works with "real" LPT ports.)
