Hi,All
   In case i found that libtiff can't read a tif file

This file can be found at: http://www.hebeinu.net.cn/01.tif

After i dig into the problem, It seems it caused by the Type of StripOffsets(tag 273) is SHORT. Here is some information that output from tiffdump (BTW,the version of libtiff i used is v3.7.2)
