Hi Chris,

I too have experienced the problem and believe it to be a problem with memory mapped files. Try specifying TIFFOpen("file.tif", "ru") which tells the library to use standard file I/O and the problem disappears. Unfortunately, I haven't as yet had time to debug the code.

Hope this helps,
Dean
