Well there are endianess problem :)

It won't :( The noise you see is typical of a 16bit image opened with 
endianess problem.

It's a known problem in fact, opening jpeg is also problematic. I think only 
the png filter works perfectly fine on PPC. So a solution could be to convert 
from tiff to png using the command-line convert (it should be lossless) and 
then open the resulting png in krita.

I can't make any promise for better day of opening files on PPC.
