because it crashes.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.xloadimage p6270005S.tif

Actual Results:
An internal error (SEGV) has occurred.  If you would like to file a bug
report, please send email to jimf@centerline.com
with a description of how you triggered the bug, the output of xloadimage
before the failure, and the following information:

Xloadimage Version 4.1

Built by:     Red Hat

Additional info:

   shows this obviously incorrect data
      p6270005S.tif is a 1752459118x2623 8192-bit greyscale TIFF imageTitled     
      p6270005S.tif is a 892350512x1769221715 black-on-white TIFF image
3.  kview displays the picture correctly and shows correct information
