This sounds incredible.  MSVC generally produces good code, so I find
it hard to believe that it violates the C ABI, whereby the caller
should pop arguments off the stack.  Are you sure this is indeed what
happens?  Can you show some evidence, like disassembly of code around
the call to tiff_load, which would show how arguments are pushed onto
the stack and never popped off it?
