The bug seems to also have appeared in 1.5.18 (due to reports from others) but
I never upgraded to that version (it was pulled from the repos). The previous
version was probably 1.5.16, but I don't think its possible to be certain. In
any case, before the upgrade, the bug did not show up.

I can't be certain that this is a bug in cairo itself, but it seems likely due
to the reports of major regressions in 1.5.18 - perhaps some sneaked into
1.5.20. Since filing the bug report, I've been unable to replicate it again.

I'll provide any help I can, don't want 1.6 to have this bug :)
