comment Disable automatic “overview scan” in Image Capture
I went to an Apple Store and the local Geniusbarman answered pretty much the same thing. My choices are now to reverse engineer Image Capture, or to yield and accept the installation of a 3rd party scanner app.

The Preview app apparently launches Image Capture to do the scanning, since I get the exact same interface and behaviour (including the overview scan).

The overview makes the full scan faster IF it allows the application to locate the non-blank ink on the page -- thus avoiding a full-page scan in case the picture to scan is smaller than a full page. But this will not help me if I do want a full-page scan, let alone if the overview is performed on the wrong scanner altogether...
