There is a backend made by Epson that also has the name "epson".

That's interesting. There is only one change in the net backend
between 1.0.7 and 1.0.9 that may cause problems with options. Well, at
least theoretically. The new code looks correct for me.

Can you test xsane 0.90 with net client 1.0.7 or vice versa? So we
could find out if the difference is xsane or the net client.
