Would it not be appropriate for cairo_image_surface_get_width() to throw a
@CAIRO_STATUS_NULL_POINTER in that case rather than allow the null pointer to
be dereferenced in _cairo_surface_is_image()?

Something like:

    if (!surface) {
        _cairo_error_throw (CAIRO_STATUS_NULL_POINTER);
        return 0;

It would be needed of course in each of the cairo_image_surface_get... funtions
before the 

    if (!_cairo_surface_is_image (surface)) {
        _cairo_error_throw (CAIRO_STATUS_SURFACE_TYPE_MISMATCH);
        return 0;


I suppose the question is just how vigilant cairo should be in avoiding SEGVs
from bogus input?
