Chris,

I have had this exact problem on NT. I have a program that needs to open many TIFF files and eventually it hangs the system. I wrote a small test program that repeatedly opens and then closes the same TIFF file. Foe each open/close it looks like there are 3-5 handles left around. I have looked into this a little bit and I've found nothing obvious. One possible place it in the routine _tiffMapProc where it calls MapViewOfFile but I'm not sure. I've found no good work around and I'd be interested in any information too.
