Thank you Kalle for a much more helpful reply.

I could certainly go with what you said. My only sticking point is that this
has suddenly affected a number of programs since 11.10. If it were only one
then I could believe it is not a problem with cairo. But to have multiple
software affected in the same way, when there was no problem at all in 11.04,
would point the finger at cairo.

Also Chris alluded to the fact that he already knew about the problem with
cairo when he said "already fixed", but in the next breath blamed other
software. Something I ask him to elaborate on, which he seemed reluctant to do.

All I ask is that if it is "already fixed", could someone give me a bug number.
