 IM's convert utility into TIFFs.

Who is giving you that message when you do exactly what?

 Gimp 2.8.4 when I attempt to open the file, either via menu -- file -- open,
 or from the command line using gimp file.tiff.
 
 Both methods work with file.tif.

That is most weird, because gimp should open the file even if
it had some totally different or no extension at all.

Can you check if ubuntu does some sort of patching to
gimp 2.8.4?

That's a DOS convention - 32-bit Windows always supported extensions of any
length.

Why don't you report it to Otto? He is quite responsive.

 I agree, filenames are irrelevant to *nix. Magic numbers are used instead.

 I don't have to check. Ubuntu patches *every* application. However, there
 has
 been a big stuffup here. The version I have upgraded to (ie, the most
 recent
 upgrade) is a ppa, 2.8.4-2precise0, by otto-kesselgulasch. Prior to the
 point-upgrade to this version GIMP opened anything I cared to throw at it.

 I have not reported this bug to Ubuntu because, even though I have been a
 Ubuntu
 user since version 5.04 and meticulously follow the bug reporting
 procedure, I
 have never been able to report a bug in a manner that is acceptable to the
 various maintainers. I have posted ithe bug in this forum in the hope that
 someone may have a workaround (or the ear of the maintainer).

 For the moment I am tacking cp intermediate.tiff output.tif onto my
 initial
 command line post-processing in order to produce a file that can be opened
 up in
 GIMP for further visually- guided post-processing.

Surely this is not correct *nix behaviour?


What's the output of the file command for this file?

Is it possible that somehow Ubuntu has adopted the Windoze convention that only 
three-letterextensions are valid?
