Haven't tried binary grid support ... ?  I usually use GRIDASCII and

Hmm, I'm surprised gdal would barf where r.in.tiff would do okay (the
opposite is usually true).  I dunno for sure, but is your gdal using
a static tiff library?  Otherwise, both should be using the same
libtiff ...?  Boggle?  Do you have tiffinfo installed? Or gdalinfo ?
If so, what is "their" opinion of these files?
