I was going to post the question below, before I attempted to find a way
to answer my own question. I noticed that the Canon ScanGear has a
"Cancel" button while Previewing, which I thought would entirely cancel
the execution of the software, but it didn't. It provided me with a way
to get that partial preview. I did try this in Vuescan, and used the
"Abort" button/function, which does the same thing.
One thing I'm finding strange, in a good way, is that I can now switch
between ScanGear and Vuescan. Previously, if I executed Vuescan, the
ScanGear would no longer work, till a reboot.
However, I'm still hoping for that TWAIN interface for Vuescan <hint> :)
