           Summary: Cairo can't handle a B/W (Black & White) X11 terminal
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.2.6
          Platform: SPARC
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: lowest
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: wcwince at uwaterloo.ca
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

On an old NCD 19r X11 terminal, driven from a Solaris 8 system
(how old can we get?), Firefox 2.0 thinks for a while,
starts to display the initial screen, and then exits with:

  Error: Cairo 1.2.6 does not yet support the requested image format:
          Depth: 1
          Alpha mask: 0x00000000
          Red   mask: 0x00000000
          Green mask: 0x00000000
          Blue  mask: 0x00000000
  Please file an enhancement request (quoting the above) at:
  Assertion failed: NOT_REACHED, file cairo-image-surface.c, line 201

Yes, I deliberately use a B&W screen when I can, since it seems
easier for my tired old eyes than the reasonably nice colour
screen that sits beside it.
This the first modern browser I've found that does more than
segfault when invoked on a B&W screen.
Maybe they're trying to tell me something :-)
