You probably just need a local udev rule to recognise the scanner and
make the link /dev/scanner0 -> sg0. That will result in the correct
permissions being set for /dev/sg0 and then xsane should be able to
"see" the scanner.

Please post the output of:
$ udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sg0`
