Simple Scan Page Size Issues

Ubuntu forums being down, and Google cache being annoying, hoping
someone can help me out here.
I just purchased and setup a new Epson Workforce 3540 MFC, and after a
bit of digging and doing, I've gotten everything to work. I'm having an
issue however with scanning, and it's an issue that seems many have had
on the Ubuntu forums.
Basically, Simple Scan will not honor my page size preference. Whether
I do 'Automatic' or specify 'Letter', it seems it always scans in Legal
size. This is causing each of my scans to have giant white space toward
Although I mentioned my new printer, I'm fairly certain this is an issue
with Simple Scan based on the Google results from Ubuntu Forums.
After a little more digging, I tried using a different scanning
application, gscan2pdf, and that gets the size correct. So it's
definitely Simple Scan.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I'd really rather use
Simple Scan over XSane or gscan2pdf.
