If that's true, you have probably found a bug in tiffcp. Help save the world, and fix it! (Or get the latest version if you haven't yet. I read on this list that there have been some recent fixes to both libtiff and tiffcp.)
I know that I can write a little utility to do that, but I'm interested in other solutions.
tiffcp would be a nice basis on which to write such a utility, so all the more reason to try to fix it...
It might not be a bug, but IIRC tiffcp allocates the whole image before savinf the tiles, so this might be the problem.
I have my own tool that converts strips to tiles using no more than needed memory (width * tileheight * bytes per sample), but it is not as complete as tiffcp. It works fine however for many images (tested on 43000x21000 image).
