Pragmatically, I found that if I flatten the .tif with Gimp before using 
it in Scribus, it apparently does not exceed the limits.  Arch B size 
page.  Also if I use .jpg rather than .tif, it works, although the .jpg 
file size is larger.

Mdv 2008.1 works either way.  I'll try win2k today sometime, but I'd bet 
on a Vista problem.
