Oh, my, I've found the reason. Digging into the source code I realized 
that TIFFSetField
gets the parameter from va_arg as double:
(From tif_dir.c,v 1.72 2006/03/15 12:49:35, line 234:)
// ...
case TIFFTAG_XRESOLUTION:
        td->td_xresolution = (float) va_arg(ap, double);
        break;
// ...

When I pass argument of type double, the tag saves the value properly.
Looks like an error in documentation (TIFFSetField.3tiff.html)?

Kind regards,
mikk
