The first three lines of the log read

[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of snapscan to 255.
[snapscan] sane_snapscan_init
[snapscan] sane_snapscan_init: Snapscan backend version 1.4.35

And later

[snapscan] sane_snapscan_open (after firmware upload): "EPSON 
Scanner1" is not a supported scanner

It seems you're using an old version of the snapscan backend. The 
backend revision should say "1.4.40" if you use the CVS version. 
Since you wrote earlier that you're using a fairly recent CVS 
snapshot you probably have two versions of SANE installed (e.g. one 
in /usr/lib/sane and one in /usr/local/lib/sane).
