I recompiled cairo without the -fstack-protector and this error does go away
during application usage.  This does not change the behavior of
_cairo_stroker_join(), it simply is not caught stack protection.

I'm not comfortable with the fact that the cairo code can exploit the stack. I
believe this to have security implications.
