As I remember, I came across with similar problem before but since it's  
a long time ago, I can't recall exact what's happening.

Mine was related to ImageMagik, but yours should be sth related to  
libtiff (may be wrong version)

hopefully you'll get sth from here

BTW, mine is Asian mac.

May be you should feed american macs with burgers instead of pizza. I  
give my mac some rice everyday.
