I've fixed the image backend so that glyphs that should be antialiased will now
be rendered with antialiasing even if the first glyph happens to have a bitmap

Also, I noticed that when rendering sub-pixel antialiased glyphs, that
bitmap-strike glyphs were not being rendered at all. My fix takes care of this
additional problem by simply turning off the sub-pixel antialiasing in such
cases, (though grayscaled antialiasing still occurs).

Behdad is palnning to do a more complete fix that would maintain the sub-pixel
antialiasing. But that's a separate issue, so I'm closing this bug report now.

My fix is on the master (1.5) branch here:


and is also on the 1.4 branch (so will appear in the upcoming 1.4.14 release)


Thanks for your report, and have fun with cairo!
