it looks like this behaviour depends on the firmware version of the Vista T630.
Please try the following:
remove sane-backends from your system,
get sane-backends-1.0.4 source package
vi backend/Makefile and add to CPPFLAGS = ...
then compile and install sane-backends
You now get the advanced options "slow speed" and "smear".
Try what happens if you enable "slow speed"
Please tell me the firmware version of your scanner.
