I couldn't get hold of an Artisan 710, so I instead used an Artisan 700 as you 
mentioned that the problem affected this scanner as well.

I tried scanning with scanimage at 75, 150 and 300 dpi both with the latest 
development version of iscan and with iscan 2.21. Unfortunately, I was unable to 
reproduce the problem seen in the sample image you sent me.

At this point I honestly don't know what the problem could be. A faulty USB 
cable perhaps? Just grasping at straws here. I am going to ask around a bit more 
to see if anyone else has seen this phenomenon before. I'll let you know if I 
dig anything up, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

One more thing you could try is a different distro. You could try downloading 
Ubuntu 10.04, run it as a live cd and download and install the latest 
iscan/epkowa package found here (you have to select your scanner and fill in the 
short questionnaire):

Again, grasping at straws.

Happy scanning,
