I can't explain why there is a difference between calibration for 75dpi
compared to 150dpi(You didn't scan them at different bit depth, i
guess). But anyways, dark shades were incorrect since the beginning of
Canon LiDE 50 support.

I had some improvements to the calibration process sitting in my local
copy since about 3 months, so i just committed them. You can get them
from the cvs repository. Test results for the current method are welcome.
