     something didn't work like you expected. There is no 'WARNING' in 
current git source tree. You can check it by setting debug before 
running the same commands with:

The debug messages should report a '1.0 build 2302' version if latest 
version is ran.

Since SANE 1.0.23 is about to be released, I think PPA for this release 
will be available soon. It may be a matter of a week or two.

Meanwhile, you could check the libsane-genesys.so.1.0.23 library is 
present in /usr/lib/sane or in /usr/lib64/sane (on 64bits systems). Also 
check that you don't have both subdirectories.
