You are running an older version of sane-backends. Our development
snapshots are oddly named, but a recent one would be 1.0.26git. I
suspect your problem is fixed there. We have a release in a few days,
and it would be nice to verify. Perhaps you can upgrade in the
meantime? You might be able to use Rolf's PPA for this, per recent
posts on this list.
