--- Comment #13 from ~suv <suv-sf at users.sourceforge.net> ---
This commit breaks canvas text (SPCanvasText) in Inkscape (used e.g. to display
snap indicators and measurements (new measure tool) on-canvas) if compiled with
the Quartz backend. The messages display as expected if running the same
Inkscape builds with a recompiled cairo 1.14.2 which has this commit reverted.
Is there anything that cairo clients need to watch out for to adapt to this

Build env:
Mac OS X 10.7.5, dependencies installed via MacPorts (local port tree), tested
with Inkscape 0.48.5, 0.91 and recent trunk (r14007).

I can't offer a reduced test case (code), but do have two osx application
bundles of Inkscape available - the older one includes cairo 1.14.0, the newer
one 1.14.2 - if this would be of any help [1].

Please let me know if you prefer to have a separate report filed for this
regression. I'd also be glad for any info I could forward to inkscape devs if
canvas text needs to be changed when compiled with GTK+/Quartz [2].

[1] download links for bundled apps:
with cairo 1.14.0: https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/6542/
with cairo 1.14.2: https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/6796/

Steps to reproduce:
1) draw a rectangle
2) switch to the measure tool, and measure (click+drag) across the rectangle

[2] AFAICT relevant source in inkscape (trunk):
