I just noticed a bug in tif_unix.c (and perhaps tif_win32.c, but I'm not sure)
Catch is, I don't know if it's worth fixing or not...
In the function _tiffMapProc, the function _tiffSizeProc is used to get the size of the file. This size is then compared with -1 to check for an error.
The problem is that _tiffSizeProc always returns a value >= 0. Thus size will never be -1 and _tiffMapProc will always attempt to map the file.
