I have a Centos 5.6 machine that appears to have stopped being able to print tiff files via cups after an automatic update to libtiff-3.8.2-7.el5_6.7.i386 from libtiff-3.8.2-7.el5_5.5.i386 on April 9th. When I try to print a file by means of:

lp -d printer img.tif

The result is several sheets of paper with unidentifiable characters at the top of each page.

I previously had posted a similar problem with a Fedora 14 system with the use of libtiff-3.9.4-3 that was fixed with libtiff-3.9.4-4 on 04/08/2011.

Even Rouault determined the Fedora problem was related to a security fix http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2297

Can anyone comment on whether my problem with libtiff-3.8.2-7 on Centos 5.6 is the same problem?
