You're probably not getting what you expected.  You probably menat:

% catch {exec scanimage} foo

Note: curly braces vs. square brackets.

If you're brave and persistent, you could figure out how to set up the
nsdci module and use ns_proxy to run the command in a proxy process

simply terminate the proxy and not the main nsd.
