git version is capable only of scanning 300 dpi grayscale correctly.  
So try using: 
scanimage --verbose --progress --resolution 300 --mode Gray

I made some very simple changes that allow to scan in 100 and 300 dpi
both in grayscale and colour, and posted to this list on May 28th. You
can give it a try.
In the meantime got 50dpi working (thanks to stef's usb analysis
scripts) to some extent as well, but it still needs some work.
