Appears to be no longer an issue in ubuntu 12.04

If I ssh to my box and try to access scanner from the shell (e.g. scanimage -L) the device is not accessible; but once I add myself to group 'scanner' and logout and back in again, it works fine.

There is clearly the correct ACL here.

$ ls -l /dev/bus/usb/001/005
crw-rw-r--+ 1 root root 189, 4 Oct 15 21:23 /dev/bus/usb/001/005

getfacl shows the user who is logged on at the console (which happens to be a different user), *and* group scanner.
