Hi, I am using libtiff on a linux system (OpenSuSE 11) to open a very large number of files.

I notice that if I open more than about 210 files I receive some unexpected errors from LibTiff: "TIFFWriteBufferSetup: [filename]: No space for output buffer

I suspect it is some kind of limit within LibTiff, so is there any way to overcome this? I really would like to load more than 210 files at once (I need about 250-300), so if there's a method of changing the limit it would be superb to know!

Thanks,
Simon.
