           Summary: "Fatal IO error 104" when font size is too large
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.4.10
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: jbrownson at gmail.com
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

When the font size is set large relative to the display and show_text is used
the program crashes with the following message:

Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server :0.0.

I specifically noticed this as I have a habbit of scaling my cairo windows to
be 1x1 and the default font size was large enough to cause this. Attached is an
example program to recreate the crash.

The font size that makes things crash seems to be dependant on the font
selection, but is difficult to narrow down exactly.

I'll attach a simple example to reproduce the problem.
