[sane-devel] JPEG compression slipped in?

If I scan a page of text at 200dpi in color mode (for example) with
xsane, then zoom in to 400%, I can see jpeg-like artifacts around
letters and other sharp lines.  This isn't an artifact of the xsane
zooming process, as saving the file as a TIFF and examining the
individual pixels with another program will also show the artifacts.

Is there an option to turn this off?
