The problem is, if I try to scan any more than a Class C, I get a "No 
buffer space available" error and the scan get's bogged down with 15 and 
60 second pauses between scans.

You could try fiddling with /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max or 
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem to see if those buffers are the culprits.
