It looks to me it is an issue with address sanitizer itself that cannot handle allocation attempts of 17 GB, but when running in normal conditions (and under Valgrind too), the realloc() fails properly (or might succeed if you have a huge amout of RAM) properly.

One could discuss if libtiff should do such huge allocations but that's a tricky subject...

Yeah and my test machine has 24G so no problems allocating 17G :)
