Adrian's fix for that bug has landed now. The underlying causes were
quite involved. See:


I don't know if Adrian has any guess as to whether this fix might have
reduced the likelihood of the PostScript file crashing a printer. But
it's definitely worth a shot if the original reporter could try to
replicate the problem with this fix in place. (We'll have a new cairo
snapshot with this fix in it momentarily.)
