I used to use Kodak PJ640 with an LS1000, and it was curiously immune to grain 
aliasing. It's now extinct though.

I would try Fuji Superia 400 if you haven't already. In general Fuji seem to 
have a slightly less sharp grain/dye structure than Kodak, which may help with 
grain aliasing problems. It's an extremely good general-purpose film.

Unless you have tramline scratches which indicate grit or roughness in the 
camera film path or cassette light-trap, scratches and dirt are *always* a 
strong indication to sack your lab.
