libtiff 3.9 is indeed in good shape.  Unfortunately due to problems in 
the tag directory code I still find 4.0 unusable for my application 
and am surprised that it works for you. Libtiff 4.0 fails its own test 
suite miserably.  More than likely the fixes for 4.0 are trivial.  The 
hard part is knowing what the fixes should be. :-)

There was a time when libtiff 4.0 was working fine for my application 
but I get the impression that last minute changes broke the directory 
code again.
