Ah, ok,

I've removed/uninstalled the previous packages
and re-installed from the git sources in /usr and /etc
and re-installed iscan+plugin

$ which scanimage 

$ sudo scanimage  -L
device `epson:libusb:002:003' is a Epson  flatbed scanner

$ sudo sane-find-scanner  | grep USB
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0116 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:002:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

still the same error.
I posted the trace of iscan on 


iscan failed . Again, I noticed a few binary chars in the trace.
