I agree it is a hardware problem but smart programmers have been working
around hardware problems for decades.
I have a Pascal program that takes N files at arbitrary exposure levels and
combines them into one "longpass" result. It accounts for charge bleeding
and a number of other issues. The result has none of the gross errors that
Vuescan currently shows and works far better.
I'd give it to Ed but the algorithms are proprietary.
People claiming the longpass results I'm seeing in Vuescan are the "best
that can be done using software" simply don't know what they are talking
