Hi TIFF experts,

I have a tiff file that causes a crash with tiffsplit when run on Solaris (Sparc or Intel) but not on Linux.

It works successfully on
Red Hat Linux 2.4.18 -- libtiff.so.3.5

but crashes on
Solaris 9 on Sparc -- libtiff.so.3.7.1
Solaris 9 on Sparc -- libtiff.so.3.9.4
Solaris 10 on Intel -- libtiff.so.3.8.2

and in each case pstack shows stack trace like

$ pstack /var/core/core.tiffsplit.15965
core '/var/core/core.tiffsplit.15965' of 15965: /usr/local/bin/tiffsplit file.tiff

What could I do to make it work properly on Solaris 9 on Sparc?

Is there a place I could upload a copy of the TIFF if you need to see it?

Thanks for your help.
