This is not a bug as such; TIFF writer software is not required to
support byte orders other than the native one on which it runs.

Any TIFF compliant reader program must support both byte orders,
so if you need to do this to accomodate a  poorly executed
implementation of TIFF, it may be more worthwhile to
embarrass the original programmers of the TIFF reader to do
a better job.
