I had similar problems with older Linux kernels. There is a paragraph
Adaptec 1542 SCSI adapter:
Using buffer sizes of more than 32768 bytes with the aha1542 driver can
lead to kernel panic. To avoid this, set --enable-scsibuffersize or
SANE_SG_BUFFERSIZE to 32768, or download and install the SG driver
2.1.37 or newer from http://www.torque.net/sg.
Further more there is a comment about that in man sane-scsi.
I has the same problems (sometimes) with the 2940. But after upgrading
to Linux 2.2.17 the problems seem to be fixed.
As a work around decrease the scsi buffer size to 32 kb.
