Austin, this "ratcheting" motion is common on 
many scanners, both film and flatbed.  It's a 
function of how much RAM is available within 
the scanner firmware.  If the firmware handles 
it properly it's not a problem.  If there's 
a small buffer, the scan mechanism is gated 
by the next processing block to receive the 
scan data.

My SprintScan would do it from time to time, 
and I must admit I was rather concerned the 
first time I saw it behave that way.
