SANE is up-to-date and okay. However, from your previous message  
I saw that you had installed .deb packages. And it might be a fix to  
uninstall it and to get the sources from the SANE server - provided it  
isn't an unsupported sensor.

.To get some more information about your scanner it might be helpful to  
run 'lspci' on the command line.
