why do i have to unload usblp module to run scanner?

I'm running an HP PSC 1600 series scanner. Here's some info on my system:

uname -r
this is the i686 kernel, by the way

libsane version is libsane-hpaio-1.7.4a-6

hpijs version is hpijs-1.7.2-10.fc7

My question is why do I need to remove the usblp module to run my scanner? It's detected by sane-find-scanner but not by scanimage -L, scanimage only detects my tv card. I have to do modprobe -r usblp, run my scanner then modprobe usblp to enable the printer again.
I thought I might compile the module but I run into errors about files missing despite having all the "Fedora Everything" files and posting a question here earlier on that subject.
