Hi Stefan

First I have to say that it is very useful to enable debug mode for 
finding errors by typing the following on the console:

There isn't currently an entry in genesys_devices.c and in genesys.conf 
for the lide-35, so the genesys backend aborts. We have to add the 
lide-35 to this files.

As Gerald wrote, the scanner controller gl841 the lide-35 is using, 
isn't currently supported by the genesys backend. Stef is going to split 
the genesys backend to one part supporting the gl646 and one part 
supporting the gl841. After that I plan to start development for the gl841.
