Thank you, allan! The snooped image from Windows-Cyberview looks nearly 
identical to the Xsane one with software gamma set to 1.0 (all 
OPT_GAMMAs set to SANE_CAP_INACTIVE in the backend), have a look at 
300q-snoop-cy.pnm and 300q-g10-xs.pnm at 
http://wwwuser.gwdg.de/~mrickma/sane-proscan-7200/status-270411/ . When 
looking at 300q-22g-xs.pnm (sofware gamma set to 2.2 in Xsane) it pretty 
well fits the Windows-Cyberview one in 300q-cy.jpg.
My question is now, whether there is an option for SANE backends to tell 
the frontend that it is unable to do gamma by hardware but would like to 
use a preset gamma as standard. Are there any other backends which 
do/need that?
