Today I wasnít able to access my scanner with xsane as a user (that belongs to group scanner) anymore. Checking the permissions in /proc/bus/usb revealed that the permission configuration of hotplugd had not set the group to scanner but to root. Since I remembered that configuring hotplugd is tedious and boring, I did a quick
apt-get install udev
and repluged my Epson CX3650. And voila, it worked!
Udevís package description tells me that udev replaces the hotplug package and requires a kernel not older than 2.6.12.
