This is what my hunch was. I at first thought that the fact that the
problem also exists when the scan is 2000 dpi counted against that
theory, but given the ccd size is the same at both settings I think that
that doesn't hold up. Ed Hamrick asked me to send a raw scan but if it
is grain aliasing I'm not sure that there will be much that can be done
in software. On the other hand, if push comes to shove I would think
that a higher resolution drum scan would resolve the grain and solve the
problem (unfortunately at a monetary cost).
