The following options are available:

* "Coarse calibration": If you disable this one, you must set offset
  and gain manually for each color.
* "Coarse calibration for first scan only": That's just to make
  scanning a bit faster  
* "Quality calibration": That's the white calibration done for every
  pixel of the CCD/CIS sensor.  

Which one was it? Telling me the French name is also ok :-)  

Are the colors ok now? I.e. is red scanned as ed and there are no
small horizontal stripes?

Which version of sane are you using (scanimage --version)? The version
of xsane is not that important.
