Hi Konstantin,

Its more likely your problem is in jbigkit rather than libtiff, so it might be worth looking for help from its author.

I would be interested in seeing some of your bad files. I have my own implementation of T.85 (the subset of JBIG used for FAX), and I use libtiff to read and write these images as the T85 compression type defined in the TIFF-FX spec. If some FAX systems send you bad images I would like to see how my code reacts to them.

on a tiff image received per fax one of the pages has some strange corruption which causes libtiff (and any program using it) to crash in a strange way. If only the corrupted page is processed or it is processed first, there is no problem. But if more pages are processed and the corrupted one is not the first one, an error like the following appears:

*** glibc detected *** tiffcp: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x095b4eb8 *** ======= Backtrace: ========= /lib/libc.so.6[0x444306e1] /usr/lib/libtiff.so.5(_TIFFfree+0x1a)[0x47cc4d40]


It seems to me as there is some data structure that is not initialized correctly between the iterations when processing the pages.

If anyone is interested in finding this bug please let me know so I can send you a good and the bad page (24kB each). Otherwise I will discard the bad images in a while. Here the tiffinfo output:
