Which backend version are you using - I once had such a "wrong scaling
of calibration data" but for some scanner revisions.

Please update to the latest SANE version.

Could you also send me a log (in private) containing the log file of:

SANE_DEBUG_AVISION=3D7 scanimage -L 2> log

The backend supports both - but I guess he is running a version with
broken calibration. I'm currently working on the calibration stuff in
this minute anyway because I noticed myself that it has endian issues
on big-endian architectures (e.g. PowerPC, SPARC).
