GhostScript v 9.10 fails to extract TIFF from PDF - needs documenting

      Description

      If GhostScript v 9.10 is installed, extracting TIFFs from PDFs (in, for example, a newspaper issue PDF ingest) fails to create TIFF OBJ files, meaning all derivative creation for the objects fails. Changing to GhostScript 9.05 fixes the issue. 

      If this is a problem with GhostScript and not Islandora's interaction with it, then the incompatibility with this version should be documented. I don't know if this happens with versions later than 9.10.
