--- Comment #14 from Wolfgang Ulbrich <chat-to-me at raveit.de> ---
Ok, i will try to explain what did crash in MATE desktop (gtk3 version).
Maybe this helps to get your attention.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Installing Mate desktop gtk3 version from repos for fedora or archlinux.
Don't update cairo here because this repo use a patched cairo version to avoid
this annoying issue.

2. Load random applets into mate-panel.

3. enable compositor in marco (our WM) if it isn't already enabled.

4. Disable compositor via GUI or gsettings.
gsettings set org.mate.Marco.general compositing-manager false

5 Now you will see that several panel applets are crashing and the panel tries
to reload them.

This isn't a randomly failure and is reproducible all the time.

Crash in stacktrace from our clock-applet (full version i will attach):

With the patch from reporter this does not happen and we can can happily switch
the compositor off/on.
I use the fix since several month for myself and for the Mat gtk3 repo, and i
didn't saw any collateral damage.

Dear cairo devs,
hope this is enough info and please take a look at it again.
