I have a tiff image that has been giving me problems with JAI (Java Advanced Imaging). I decided to test it out using these tools and I've received mixed results with both the tiffinfo.exe and tiffdump.exe. I'm wondering why tiffdump.exe did not have any problems with the image but tiffinfo.exe did. Below is the results from both commands:

Libtiff has a known bug which can cause wrong results or crashes if the TIFF file contains certain tags. Even the latest CVS version has the bug. Joris has proposed a patch for the problem.
