How do you come to this figure? When I read the byte sequence ^G^K^E^@
backwards I get 05B7...

Already tried the last days, few utilities, both AI images, no
problems encountered! (Right now I let in the background GNU Emacs
edit the file to leave just the TIFF portion to see whether it's OK –
with the Mac line endings no UNIX command line tool works and the UNIX
line endings converted file is not OK...)
