I don't know anything about IPTC, but I would suggest using tiffdump to
dump the contents of your file.  It will give low level details of all
fields that can be useful for debugging problems like this.

Putting a file demonstrating the problem somewhere people can download it
(by http or ftp) would also be helpful if you want help diagnosing the problem.

"On PC windows" is not a very specific statement.  I gather some windows
application has no problem with the file?  What application?  Does it
properly read the IPTC info?  The message you see are all just warnings.
I would expect a libtiff based application to read the image though the
IPTC info might be ignored.
