Does it also open multiple-page LZW-Tiff's already? 

That's is where I see a usability problem if this hasn't been implemented 

- The user open's a multipage-(LZW)-Tiff, 
- KViewSheel opens it with its TIFF-component which only shows the very first 
- user complains about a bug in the FAX-backend ...

And how does KViewShell distinguish non-g3/g4-Faxes from Images?
