"I've found this link, http://bugs.debiandotorg/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=525963, where the guy has the same problem :

leads to the optical array moving very
slowly and the motor making lots of
noise while doing so (after scanning
the first page). Interrupting the scan
(CTRL-C) doesn't help, one has to
unplug the scanner.

It seems to be a libsane bug, fixed in the next version.

Ok thanks.

I've got to stop answering my own questions. :)

EDIT : Got it to work by downloading the following packages from the next version of Ubuntu :

libsane_1.0.20-4ubuntu2_i386.deb
libgphoto2-2_2.4.6-1ubuntu5_i386.deb
libgphoto2-port0_2.4.6-1ubuntu5_i386.deb"
