Is anyone aware of any other serious issues with the 3.9 branch? If not, I'd like to produce a 3.9.0 release candidate for testing.

It would be nice if libtiff would run clean with 'valgrind'. While I am not aware of any memory leaks, it seems that TIFF directories are accessed/written which contain uninitialized data and this causes 'valgrind' to complain about use of uninitialized data. The workaround may be as simple as doing a 'memset' on directory structures immediately after they are allocated.
