That's not the case, as I've mentioned it works under OS/2, so a hardware
failure can be excluded.

No, it was the wrong 'libtiff.so'! I installed version 3.5.3 with KDE 1.1.2
a few weeks ago and since then the problem arises.

Thanks to Helge Oldach <hmo@sep.hamburg.com> for this hint and for telling
me how to link HylaFAX statically against libtiff 3.4. That solved the
problem. It also worked with libtiff 3.5.1, but to be sure I use the latest
libtiff of the author of HylaFAX....

Thanks anyway - Matthias
