- With any valid application or test harness program that incorporates exiv2, load the attached image.
- With the same application or test harness as in step one, try to extract all the exif data from the image.
- With the same application or test harness, try to add a tag and observe the results.
Notice that the following assertion fails:
tiffcomposite.cpp:1049: virtual uint32_t Exiv2::Internal::TiffBinaryArray::doCount() const: Assertion `typeSize != 0' failed.
We're seeing this in Shotwell.
#797: TiffBinaryArray::doCount(): Replaced assertion with a check for type size which sets it to 1 for unknown types. (Clint Rogers)

Thanks for reporting this. Checked in a change similar to the proposed patch, consistent with what is done elsewhere.
However, the sample picture also seems to expose another issue:

The reason why the image description is not set as expected is due to the invalid entry 0x5239 in directory SonyMinolta. Its value overwrites the modified tag and re-instates the original value. I think changing the logic how we deal with out-of-bounds values is appropriate: if it doesn't look right, truncate it, rather than trying to adjust the size.
