The sample documents in the bug had two problems: 32 bit sample size
and use of floating point sample format[1]. Neither is supported so this
patch adds checks to reject images that have either of these properties.

Additionally a sanity check is added to make sure that similar crash
(division by zero) cannot be induced by creating a malformed image that
specifies the same values for MaxSampleValue and MinSampleValue.

Some literals have been changed from 1 to 1UL since the result will
be assigned to a variable with ULONG data type. With this change it
was actually possible to load the 32 bit image on a 64 bit system but
the colors were distorted (probably due to unsupported sample format).
So rejecting all 32 bit images still seems to be necessary.

This patch has been tested on a 64 bit Linux system using the samples
in the bug and some images from libtiff sample collection at
