Fix TIFF performance issues

Some TIFF files take an unacceptably long time to initialize - see tiff/glen/742015a20x3middle16bit.tif for an example. This is a 16MB file, and takes well over 5 minutes to initialize.

This is a relatively recent occurence, as TIFFs used to read rather quickly. Ideally, this should be fixed before the December 28 release.
