Sane 1.0.27 breaks canoscan lide 100

Detailed description
As i installed the new sane, my scanner, canoscan lide 100 (backend genesys), produces pages with a vertical black bar with inverted colors in the middle (on a white page the bar is just black, of course).
Reverting to sane 1.0.25 AND removing ~/.sane/, make things work again.

I have the same issue.
I did a 'git bisect' and it seems, commit bd0b0cd218504868f32962a5558449956c8ce242 is the bad guy:

bd0b0cd218504868f32962a5558449956c8ce242 is the first bad commit

use rewind instead of slow_back_home

- if required by flags, do a rewind instead a slow_back_home that pollutes
shading settings

I hope, this helps in resolving the issue :-)

I confirm the same problem with a Canon LiDE 200. Reverting the patch, the scanner works correctly again.

I also got a canon lide 100 and have the same problem.

Is there another way to fix this? I got the problem on Arch and OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (both on .27). Since it seems that a new version takes some time (nearly 2 years from .25 to .27) my scanner would be basically broken for the foreseable future.

If only reverting a patch, which lies beyond my ability, is a viable solution i would have to get a new device.

Christoph, report to your distro maintainers. They could add a patch in the package. This is the offending patch;a=commitdiff;h=bd0b0cd218504868f32962a5558449956c8ce242

Thanks for the hint Juan. I reported the issue for OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. After reading the Arch Guidelines i think reporting the Bug there is pointless because they specifically state that they do not deal with Upstream Bugs.

Arch also includes sometimes patches. The sane package includes a patch for a kodak scanner. Don't be afraid when you need to report a bug to the maintainer, they can always just close the bug.
