The file xerox-killer-hardy.ps works for me. ie it displays in ghostscript
without errors and prints on my LaserJet 4050.

I couldn't see anything obvious in the file like large fallback images that may
be causing a problem.

There are a some things the bug reporter could try:

- Check the CUPS settings. There should be a way to get CUPS to filter the
PostScript through ghostscript. This may help as ghostscript has more knowledge
about printer limitations than cairo.

- Trim down the PS file to find the smallest set of PostScript commands that
crash the printer.

- git bisect cairo to find the commit that started crashing the printer.

I can't see that there is anything I can do unless I can reproduce the problem

The font rendering issues should be all fixed in git.
