This time I tried bugzilla, but the promised
         "A token for changing your password has been emailed to you."

never arived here (at least not within one hour). [I had first tried to create an account and the promised password didn't arrive. Then I tried again, got the above, and waited....]

So once again an email that will need to be approved by the moderator. Sorry.


I just fetched and built libtiff-3.7.1. There was a gcc warning

../../tiff-3.7.1/tools/tiffset.c: In function `main':

../../tiff-3.7.1/tools/tiffset.c:110: warning: assignment makes integer \

        from pointer without a cast

and sure enough there was a bug in the code. The attached patch should fix that.
