Libtiff 4.0 beta 5 is dated 2009-11-04 to me. From the most ChangeLog we 
have this entry:

2010-04-20  Olivier Paquet  <olivier.paquet@gmail.com>
	* libtiff/tif_dirinfo.c: Use correct set_field_type for
	TIFFTAG_PIXAR_IMAGEFULLWIDTH, TIFFTAG_PIXAR_IMAGEFULLLENGTH,
	TIFFTAG_PIXAR_MATRIX_WORLDTOSCREEN and TIFFTAG_PIXAR_MATRIX_WORLDTOCAMERA.
	They were unreadable with TIFF_SETGET_UNDEFINED, a regression from 3.9.2.
	http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2139

So I'd try again with CVS trunk.
