I am getting this same error message, but in a very different context and with
a different version of libcairo2.  I am running Debian unstable on an x86

Most applications with a gui (including rhythmbox and firefox) seem to be dying
with an error message similar to this one:

Error: Cairo 1.4.6 does not yet support the requested image format:
        Depth: 16
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x00007c00
        Green mask: 0x000003e0
        Blue  mask: 0x0000001f
Please file an enhancement request (quoting the above) at:
e.c:199: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

As a result, my entire desktop is currently pretty hosed, which is why I am
raising the severity and priority of this bug report.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you reproduce the
problem.  As I am not a cairo expert, I am also happy to receive any advice for
things to try on my end to ameliorate the situation.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration,
