If you've compiled source code from CVS server scanimage should detect your
device as "Hewlett-Packard Scanjet G2710 flatbed scanner"
Maybe, binary for hp3900 backend has been installed in a different location
(for example /usr/local/lib) and scanimage is just using the old version
located in /usr/lib.
