I need a little assistance - anyone. I've managed to get started (I
think) and test the first bisect and tried to mark as 'GOOD', but got

Network scanner not detected by xsane after upgrade to 16.04
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Hopefully I'm reporting this in the correct area/group. Sorry if not.
After upgrading to 16.04, my scanner is no longer detected by xsane (and
other scan apps.) The model is 'Epson WF-3520' multi-function and is connected
wirelessly to the network.
The problem occurs on all my computers: A Dell 64 bit desktop, An Asus 64 bit
laptop, A Medion 32 bit laptop.
I've upgraded to the latest software released by the manufacturer on 2
computers, but it makes no difference.
Printing works OK and also the scanner is detected if I connect using a USB
cable (a second printer is installed though).
The problem only occurs using the 'linux-image-4.4.0...' series of kernels.
If I boot with any of the previous kernels available, 'linux-image-4.2.0...' or
'linux-image-3.19.0...' everything works OK.
I am able to ping the scanner.
I've tried a number of suggested fixes from searching around various forums,
although many of these relate to 'back-end' scanners connected to a host for
network access which is not applicable as mine is connected directly to the
network. In any case none have worked.
I have tried the following:
. Removing all manufacturer software and /usr/sane.d/epkowa.conf
. Comment out all entries in the /usr/sane.d/dll (Back-end related)
. Comment out all entries in the /usr/sane.d/dll.conf.conf except 'net' and
adding 'epkowa' (Back-end related)
. Disable the firewall (ufw)
. Specifically adding a port to use (1865) (ie. net 192.1... 1865
. Linking the libraries in /usr/lib/sane to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane
Other than that I'm at a loss and sticking with older kernels.
