    Classification: Unclassified

          Reporter: tetromino at gentoo.org
          Hardware: Other
            Status: NEW
           Version: 1.12.16
         Component: xcb backend
           Product: cairo

(As reported downstream at https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=507478)

Gentoo users who tried linking firefox-28 with vanilla cairo-1.12.16 with the
xcb backend enabled (instead of using the patched cairo that's bundled with
firefox) have reported NULL pointer dereferences in _cairo_clip_path_destroy().

The crash is caused by _clip_and_composite_boxes() failing to check whether the
clip path being freed belongs to the constant __cairo_clip_all.
