Actually the fundamental cause is the incorrect handling of gradients
coordinates in Cairo.
Cairo is already trying to rescale gradients to fit withing the range accepted
by pixman,
but it is only doing this for linear gradients and (worse) is doing it
incorrectly and inconsistently
across different backends.

I pushed a branch which improves the handling of gradient coordinates:

Could you test it and check if it fixes your problem?
