I use a Canon Pixma MG8250 as home printer and scanner for my Gentoo Linux

When scanning color images in higher resolutions (>75 dpi) the colors are
misaligned in the output file, only in the vertical direction. I found a
bug report of a similar issue (concerning another Canon Pixma model) here:

This seems to throw some light on the problem, but I don't dare open the
