OK, this time for sure.  The image ftp://ftp.quitt.net/TIFF/00001901.tif is
slightly ill.  It displays properly, but it's the only image I've ever seen that
when expanded and recompressed by libTIFF has completely different image data
(with all parameters the same).  If the data is placed into a PostScript document
GCView won't even show it.  If I put the recompressed data into the document
instead, it displays and prints properly.

I'm telling the user that the TIFF is bad and that the vendor should be
notified.  I've also added an option that forces the program to expand and 
compress the image for use, so printing continues

But what is wrong with the TIFF?  Or what am I (and PostScript) missing?
