It is. Could you please write a nice commit log, adding

Bugzilla: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81699

and submit. Ideally we would love to have a test case to hit this problem as
well. If you can capture it using cairo-trace that would be a good start.

That's my only worry, I am trying to remember all the call paths that enter
here and why we have empty boxes in the first place. In this case, the empty
boxes seem to be part of the clip, which is worrisome. All the zero height
boxes should have been prefiltered...

So yes, this suggests a far deeper problem than just the tesselate failure.
