I have a 1260 so tests that I do with that might well be reproduceable
on my machine.
When I looked at a similar issue previously, I did manage to reproduce
the vertical banding, but found that the latest version of SANE at that
time did not exhibit the issue.
Instead, there was a bug in the calibration computation that led to some
images being unusually dark. This was also diagnosed and fixed.

Could you send me a copy of an image with the issue, if it is possible?
A screen cap might be OK, just to get a feeling for what you are seeing.
