That looks correct.

OK, so you're probably comfortable with building stuff from source.

There's nothing wrong in the logs.
The bug is caused by an infelicity in the saneopts.h header file. The
SANE_NAME_SCAN_RESOLUTION and SANE_NAME_SCAN_X_RESOLUTION are exactly
the same. With Image Scan! I redefine the latter to "x-resolution" so
things work as expected.
If you really need xsane, you can fix this by recompiling with a fixed
saneopts.h and I guess I should get that file fixed upstream ;-)
Hope this helps,
