I'll take a look at this. A few random thoughts that come to mind:

1) r82001 changed our logic for <embed> to prefer a plug-in over native rendering for image types. We want to give plug-ins a chance to render an image before we render it natively.

2) QuickTime does support image/tiff, but if another plug-in also registers support for this MIME type, we will use this plug-in instead.

Given these two facts, it is possible that before r82001 the <embed> was being rendered natively (or by QuickTime) and after r82001 it is being rendered by your plug-in. Have you ruled out a bug in the plug-in being responsible for the intermittent failure?
