That happens more than you'd think ;)

But in this case, the particular error message and the resulting abort is due
to the application (or a library it's using) calling
cairo_surface_set_device_offset() when the cairo context is already in an error

So unless it's a memory corruption or something similar in cairo, checking for
the error state (or not causing it in the first place) is definitely something
the application developers should look into.
