Not a bad theory, Stephen, though I 
have 512 MB of RAM (700 MHz Athlon) 
and the problem is seen also on 35 
mm scans, which involve much less 
data than medium-format scans.

It is a very coarse-sounding scanner, 
as I have mentioned before.  So I 
wouldn't rule out mechanical problems. 
Stepper motors are known to resonate 
a certain step-rates, for example.

And unless I'm imagining this, there 
may also be a thermal component to this 
problem -- ie, it's more likely to 
occur on hot days, or after the 
scanner's been on a long time.
