Hello List.  

I am trying to tile a MrSid file and during the gdal_translate call, I am
getting a warning "Input file size is 42600, 42053 Warning 1: Lost metadata
writing to GeoTIFF  ...  too large to fit in tag.".  After that, the tiff
file is created and does seem to be ok, but I just wanted to run this by the
group and make sure no one has seen any problems with this.

My exact command line is:
gdal_translate -of GTiff -a_srs EPSG:2236 --config GDAL_CACHEMAX 999
--config GDAL_FORCE_CACHING YES -co "TILED=YES"  file.sid  file_0.tif
-srcwin 0 31554 1775 1752

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions you may have about this.
