To be fair, it may not be all Apple's fault, but a combination of  
Apple, Adobe, and in my case Epson. The Snow Leopard compatibility  
list does not mention the Twain driver problem and Adobe does not  
bother itself with Twain compatibility.
Photoshop includes support for a technology called TWAIN, which lets  
you control certain image-acquisition devices--including many  
scanners, the scanner portion of many all-in-one printers, and some  
webcams--directly from within Photoshop Elements.

During its startup process, the Photoshop Elements 6 Editor loads its  
TWAIN plug-in. This plug-in immediately begins communicating with the  
driver for each scanner or other TWAIN-compatible device that you have  
installed on your computer.

If the TWAIN plug-in cannot communicate with a device driver, then the  
application crashes.
