Well, we know the problem is stroking dashes under a fallback image so the
issue is likely to be confined to _cairo_stroker_line_to_dashed() in
src/cairo-path-stroke.c (and its inputs). If you are interested, I'd read
through that function taking note of what matrices are used and then tracing
back to see their construction. Then either you spot the problem straight-away,
or you can start comparing the difference between difference fallback
resolutions. If you can join us on irc, in #cairo on irc.freenode.net, we'll
happily help you learn the code and assist in whatever way we can.
