Crashes when Saving HiRes .tif

Short description of error
After rendering a HiRes image ((2091 x 1275) x 5) with cycles, I save the render as .png 16bit, RGBA, no problem ().
But, when I instead choose .tif, same bit and rgba, it starts saving, but after 10 seconds or so, Blender just quits/crashes without any warning or even a crash log?

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Make a render, big one :) and try saving it as .tif... atleast ((2091 x 1275) x 4).

Please provide a .blend file demonstrating the issue, much simpler for us to investigate.

Well, any .blend file should suffice, as long as the render size is big enough.

When I saved the ((2091 x 1275) x 5) render in .png, it became 133.410k (130MB),
I tried it with three different .blend files, one with a complex mesh and two with simple Scenes with just the cube and just with a plane.

It doens't matter what's inside the .blend file, scene, etc. it's only the end render size that's makes the difference, anything above a certain resolution size (W/H), blender can't save it in .tif, but in .png (havn't tried any other formats... we only work with .png for web and .tif for photography)

The .blend file I attach, is the basic scene, with a texture on the cube, and four lights and a ground plane.

I also did a "Load Factory Settings", changed the resolution percentage to 500 and hit render, then tried saving the result with TIF, RGBA, 16bit, still crashes.

Does not crash here, but gives an empty tif (218bytes!).

Mine still crashes / quits / closes.

Thou, yea, it leaves a .tif file with a filesize of 1k (218 bytes), analysis of the file shows it's just the file header in there.
