I found two weird issues with font rendering that makes it ugly.

First of all the antialiasing method seems to differ when the cairo source is a
solid color or a pattern.
Subpixel smoothing is only used with a solid color source.

The other problem happens when a black bg is used, the subpixel smoothing make
the font look bold instead of normal.
