I am using v3.4beta35 on WinNT and have run into some problems with Group 4 compression when the scanline width exceeds 65536 pixels (16 bits ?).

I am generating the tiff file with the library and then use tiffinfo -D to check it. For most files tiffinfo gives a lot of errors and warnings, for others it tries to access an illegal address and exits.

I do not know the inner working of the G4 compression/decompression code/algorithm and have therefore not tried to debug it yet.

Has anybody seen similar problems or know about limitations?, and possibly made a fix for it?

The following dump shows the errors I get as well as details about the file format.
