A CellProfiler user submitted a MetaMorph multi-image tiff. It is a z-stack, but the user took two exposures at the same z-height. BioFormats can't load it because the tries to guess the z-count and t-count (code at line 110, roughly) and gets confused by the duplicate z-heights.

The file is retrievable from the CellProfiler SVN:
