I just saw that there isn't one in the scan utility, and probably this 
isn't the (only) problem: I report FE_HAS_LOCK when the af9005 says that 
it has seen the mpeg sync byte, while I use the tpsd_lock to indicate 
FE_HAS_CARRIER. Probably FE_HAS_LOCK should depend on both conditions.
Try, as a test, in af9005-fe.c, function af9005_fe_read_status, where 
you see

         if (temp)
                 *stat |= FE_HAS_SYNC | FE_HAS_VITERBI | FE_HAS_LOCK;

change the condition to

         if (temp && (*stat & FE_HAS_CARRIER))

and tell me if you can scan this way.
