I can reproduce that. After about line 8000, the scan head stops.

Gray mode 600 dpi also seems to work.

It looks like the internal counter for the scanlines overflows. If you
inncrease the top left y value, the start of the garbage decreases.

At the moment, I don't know why this happens. The data sent to the
scanner for the setup of the scan window seems to be correct.

Can you check, if that also happens on Windows?

Unfortunately (?), my WIndows installation has died so I can't test
