[sane-devel] CX5000 sorta of working now, but not completely

I downloaded 1.1.20 and did the following for Slackware 13 installation
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --libdir=/usr/lib/sane
sudo make uninstall
sudo make install

And now
~ $ scanimage -L
device `epson2:libusb:001:002' is a Epson generic flatbed scanner

No more "no scanning device detected" answer, but xsane gives "no 
devices available" window. But, when I start xsane, the scanner does a 
"reposition" of the scanning element.

I run
scanimage >image.pnm

and it scans.

Any ideas as to why xsane is not finding the scanner now?
A lock file left over from the previous install?
