according to , when querying multi-valued fields with TiffGetField, count should be of a 16-bit unsigned integer. However, in various places in the source libtiff source code, a 32-bit unsigned integer is used. Indeed, a nasty bug I encountered was caused by count being 16 bits wide:

If my analysis is correct, I guess the documentation should be fixed.
I believe that your analysis must be correct. In my own application code, the working support for "unsupported" tags does pass a uint32 pointer for the 'count' field.
The interface is definitely confusing. Supported tags use different/varying interface definitions.
