Amazing. Seems you are describing the encoding used by ICC profiles, and evidently this is contradictory with the 8 bits encoding used by "normal" Lab TIFF.
Humm.. 16 bits Lab is not very standarized, but I HOPE different vendors don't use their own encoding. This would be a very big mess :-/ But chances are... this psychedelic effect you describe is just what happens with bad encoding.
Am I allowed to send you this testimage? (It's big though, it's around 30 meg.)
Yes, please. (hope my mailbox doesn't complain)
