The way that the tiff2pdf script works, using ps2pdf, we can only use one 
page size.  So the largest page size in the TIFF is used as the page size 
for all pages.  So if you have one page in the fax that is twice as long 
(say the page-feed fax sender sucked in two pages at once), then all pages 
will be formatted at that size.

If you upgrade libtiff to 3.6.0 or newer, it comes with its own tiff2pdf 
which works much better and faster.  Current HylaFAX CVS HEAD will use 
libtiff's tiff2pdf before the tiff2pdf script, if it is available.  
(faxsetup must be re-run.)
