Mustek ScanExpress 6000SP

I'm using SANE 1.0.1 with a Mustek ScanExpress 6000SP (SE6000SP) on a
DTC3181LE card with kernel 2.2.13. It works, but its VERY slow (atleast
ten times slower than in Windows). When scanning at 300DPI color, in
Windows it goes halfway throught the page , stops 1 second and continues
to the end. It takes a few seconds only. In SANE the scanner seems to
scan 2 cm of data then go 1cm back and scan another 2cm of data, and
takes ages to scan in 300DPI. I've tried setting SG_BIG_BUFF to the
maximum but it doesn't help. I've also tried to apply the patch to make
sane use the new sg driver but patch says its an invalid patch.

Anyone have any ideas ? Is there another version of the Mustek backend
available ?
