easy, open a terminal window on the scanning client, and run the
command i gave you.

what about scanimage on the client machine?

Tthere are three likely sources for this error:

1. xsane makes different API calls than scanimage, and triggers a bug in epson2
2. net backend munges the data
3. saned munges the data

if you maintain the package, you should know how to modify the .bb
file to add arguments to the gcc call. Something like CFLAGS="-Wall

bitbake puts its compilation output someplace funny, you'll have to
look for the log...
